View-Master Virtual Reality Viewer review: Affordable VR device could use better content
March 4, 2016 - Uncategorized
Is there such a thing as View-Master street cred? Probably not. But I am a long-time View-Master user. Well, to be clear, I used a View-Master when I was a kid. I haven’t been using one the whole time since. That would be weird.
I have, however, recently become re-acquainted with the original as well as with View-Master’s current virtual reality (VR) offering.
Last summer as my parents were packing to move out of the house I grew up in, one of the items my mother found and sent to me was my old View-Master and all its disks. If you never experienced one of these, it was a stereopticon—a 3D viewer—which has had a long and storied history. The brand is now owned by the toy company Mattel, which is ushering it into the VR era.
