The AuraVR is another VR device available in the India market. What makes it different is that it is made of plastic and comes with a head band with adjustable strap. This VR is available on Amazon.in and on AuraVR.com website for ₹650.
Inside the box you will get the VR headset and head strap. There is no assembling required, just attach the head strap and start using it.
The AuraVR is made of plastic and it’s a made in India product. It is using good quality plastic but finishing could have been better, nevertheless for this price you can ignore that. This VR will definitely last longer than the cardboard VR, these are more reliable and durable.
Attach the head strap to get a hands free VR experience. I have used the OnePlus Cardboard, you need to hold the device but with Aura VR you can go hands free, it is an added advantage.
The VR also comes with a magnetic trigger that will work only with smartphones with magnetic sensors. It is advisable to go for the VR headset only if your smartphones supports magnetic and gyro sensors for a good 360 degree VR experience.
When you attach the handset there is a sponge inside that will secure the smartphone, prevent it from slipping out – you will also need to lock the front white rectangular cap. It is easier to lock it but not that easy to unlock it, they should have used an easier locking system. You can use any smartphone with up to 6 inch screen.
The Velcro head strap is adjustable, check video review on how to attach it.
You will need to download the VR app, install it, run it and align the reference line on your smartphone with the VR after attaching the phone to the VR headset. You can also check for more recommended VR apps on the AuraVR.com website.
When compared with the OnePlus cardboard the Aura VR was slightly better.
Another affordable VR headset that is made of plastic and made in India. If you want to experience virtual reality using your smartphone and want something reliable that will last for a longer time, you can go in for the AuraVR.
