AirVR is a new virtual reality headset that leverages iOS Retina hardware.
The project, from Toronto-based Metatecture, is billed as putting virtual reality within people’s reach.
“Introducing the AirVR and AirVR+, the first wireless VR headsets for iPad Mini, iPad Mini with Retina and iPhone 6+. AirVR is the most affordable way to experience the world of Virtual Reality for yourself. With your iPad Mini or iPhone 6+ and AirVR, you have everything needed to experience immersive VR anywhere,” the company said on it's Kickstarter page.
"The only thing that's limiting you in virtual reality is your creativity."

Vrvana, the Montreal-based company formerly known as True Player Gear, today launched a crowdfunding campaign for its previously announced virtual reality device, Totem (working title). The company has bold plans for the headset--already in its fifth iteration--CEO Bertrand Nepveu told me in a recent interview. But to get the project off the ground and compete against Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus, Vrvana first needs to raise CAD $350,000 ($317,000) on Kickstarter.
Virtual reality is well on its way, and leading the charge is Oculus.Oculus is the team behind the highly-anticipated Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, which Facebook acquired for $2 billion earlier this year.
Experiencing virtual reality through the Rift can be difficult to describe, but it's vastly different than seeing a 3D movie.
