What I really like about the Creaker Virtual Reality glasses is that the headset itself is built exceptionally well. The headset is simple to use, and I feel like my phone is well protected within. Setting up the headset for the first time is as easy as downloading your apps, and then placing your phone inside the door within the supports. When you clip the door closed you are set up and ready to go. Inside the unit is a soft foam that is designed to gently move your phone towards the lenses, protecting it from damage, and ensuring that you have the best viewing experience possible by positioning your phone properly.
When I first opened the box and saw the headset I was a little bit surprised at the size of the unit, and e headset is designed to fit many different sizes. My Samsung Galaxy S7 fit inside perfectly, and I was thankful that it comes with an additional piece that allows you to adjust the inside view to accommodate smaller phones as well, like my daughter's iPhone 5S. On the underside of the headset there are two sliding switches that allow you to adjust the view to fit your pupils. Super handy, especially when we are sharing the headset in our household.
to be 100% honest, I was a little concerned about how comfortable it would be to wear. When I pulled it out of the box and started inspecting it I was immediately impressed with how light it actually is, and my initial fears were alleviated. The reason the headset is so large (I can only assume) is that that because it does fit a large assortment of phone sizes.
If there was to one adjustment that I would like to see with future headsets would be to have a trigger button located directly on the headset to allow you to play the games easier. You can of course buy a controller for the headset, and it wasn't the end of the world. The headset is still very functional, but would be more so with a trigger button.
You can buy your very own pair of Creaker VR Glasses through Amazon! As of the time of posting they are offered at $19.99 Canadian, and will ship for free with Amazon Prime. I think that this headset would make the perfect Christmas present, especially at the current price!!! Please note - that there are no affiliate links featured in this post!
I received the Creaker Virtual Reality 3D Glasses at a reduced price to help facilitate my honest and unbiased review. All opinions expressed are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
And without further ado, I present The Optimistic Beauty's list of our Favourite VR Apps from the Play Store!
1. VR Space Adventure (This is a Google Cardboard App - but works on all VR Headsets). I love the fact that this app is grounded in education and allows you to learn about the different planets in our solar system, and also to explore them "on the ground". Very, very cool! The Mom and the geek in me rate this as my number one pic!
2. VR Roller Coaster. This app features two different options, a day time ride and a night time ride. It could also be renamed "The Roller Coaster Ride That Made Jaime Sick" because it's just that amazingly lifelike!
3. |Crazy Swing VR. This is one of the first that I downloaded and tried and it was actually pretty great. I was surprised at just how real everything seemed, especially when the swing goes upside down!
4. Jurassic VR. Take a ride through the Jurassic riding on a dinosaur. You had me at dinosaur! You have two options, free riding and dino joyride. Free riding you explore on your own, while the dino joyride follows a preselected course.
5. Spaceout.VR. This app is a little different but it does offer more than just spacing out. I travelled to a library in Bogoto, Columbia which was pretty cool! I also really like the option to "Spaceout" where you can actually travel through space!
Bonus App! VR Mac-Pan. If you're like me and grew up playing PacMan you'll love this game where you get to get to be PacMan and travel through the maze. There are only three levels, but it is a pretty neat trip down memory lane. This game isn't official PacMan but its still pretty neat and I like it. It didn't make my Top 5 list, but it was definitely close.
