It’s surprising that the Vroid T1 is not an HMD that gets more attention. It has some really neat ideas built into its unassuming frame that should actually have more interest from people looking for a mobile VR solution.

PROS
  • Able to adjust the IPD and diopter for each eye
  • Foldable, compact body
CONS
  • Only for apple devices

It’s surprising that the Vroid T1 is not an HMD that gets more attention. It has some really neat ideas built into its unassuming frame that should actually have more interest from people looking for a mobile VR solution.

First off though, this is another product that’s only for Apple fans. It’s designed for use with the iPhone 6 family, but the product descriptions suggest that the iPhone 7 may work as well. Just don’t quote us on that.

The first neat thing about the Vroid T1 is the fact that each eye has a separate IPD and diopter adjustment for each eye. While having this for the diopter is an obvious advantage, it wasn’t immediately apparent why independent IPD would matter. Then after some further thought you realise that the actual placement of your eyes isn’t symmetric. So independent IPD could give you that little edge in fine-tuning the picture.

Another more negative way to look at it is that you need to fiddle with twice the number of  knobs before getting settled. It depends on your point of view.

While the Vroid is not the lightest HMD around at 300-ish grams it’s not bad at all. The real trick is the fact that the body is foldable, making it more compact.

The Vroid looks like it was made from Star Wars Storm Trooper armour pieces, it’s not too expensive for a premium mobile HMD and generally seems like a good deal. It’s a pity it doesn’t get more promotion.
