Cmoar Will Make Its Debut On The Virtual Reality Market


Cmoar is the project of a Polish studio, and its creators have managed to raise over $120,000 through Kickstarter, with 30 percent more than they’ve asked on the funding platform. The modular smartphone-based headset can be preordered from its official website at a price of $129, and you’ll be able to use it with a variety of Android and iOS phone with a screen size that varies between 5 and 5.7-inch.

Cmoar is more similar to Samsung’s Gear VR in terms of hardware, than Oculus Rift, because it depends on a smartphone and there are over 150 supported models, including the latest iPhone 6S. After raising $120,249 on Kickstarter, the developers of Cmoar decided to make the final touches to it before settling on the commercial release.

The device will look like a media box with interchangable lens which will support 2D, 3D and AU (augmented reality) at a resolution of 2,048×1,536 pixels (2K). The physical dimensions of the Cmoar will be 200x100x90mm, it will weight between 350 and 400 grams and its lenses size will be 48mm, supporting a 105-degree field of view. With the external controls, the wearer will be able to control the phone after inserting it into the headset. The Cmoar has also micro-USB and HDMI connectors so you can connect it to your computer and watch movies or play games.

It also comes with a Wii-style controller wand with an average battery life of 45 hours, which is connected to your headset via the micro USB cable and it works like a media remote and it communicates via Bluetooth 4.0 LE/ Cmoar Radio 2.4 GHz.

On the Google Play Store and iTunes there are already some dedicated applications for the Cmoar, but most of them are demos and will be finished once the device will be finally released. We recommend you to try out the TV Pro app.
