You can now bring immersive mixed reality experiences to life on a smartphone using Merge EDU apps and a Merge Headset. The smartphone's camera allows full-color passthrough XR and captures the real-world environment, seamlessly blending it with virtual content. This enables users to perceive and interact with both the physical and virtual elements simultaneously.
When running Merge EDU apps in Headset Mode, the smartphone's screen becomes a portal into a merged reality, where virtual objects and environments appear vivid and lifelike against the backdrop of your actual surroundings. This allows for an engaging and believable XR experience, as users can freely move around and explore virtual objects and simulations in their environment. With Merge EDU in XR, you can study planetary orbits in your living room, inspect a life-size human anatomy model to learn about the body systems, and more using our extensive library of simulations and virtual objects.
Full color passthrough XR on a smartphone significantly enhances access to mixed reality experiences for individuals who may not have the means or desire to invest in expensive VR headsets. By utilizing a device that is already widely available and accessible - your smartphone - the barrier to entry is lowered. This affordability opens up mixed reality to a wider audience who want to enjoy the immersive and interactive nature of XR.
The Merge Headset is uniquely positioned to take full advantage of full color passthrough XR offered by smartphones. With its innovative design and compatibility with various smartphone models, the Merge Headset is the only mobile XR headset to feature automatic IPD alignment. It also provides a comfortable and secure fit for both the user and the smartphone.
This combination, along with Merge EDU apps, allows users to experience virtual content superimposed on their surroundings with exceptional clarity and detail. The Merge Headset acts as the gateway, enhancing the smartphone's capabilities and optimizing the utilization of full color passthrough technology, resulting in a truly immersive and visually captivating mixed reality experience.
