Smartphone virtual reality coming soon through prototype headset?

Virtual reality gadgets have become quite the thing lately, with products like the Oculus Rift VR making some headlines last year. Obviously at this point it’s hard to tell just how well these products will sell, as most of them have barely reached retail, and others still haven’t left the concept window. Now the biggest question is: Would you want to use a heads-up display for your smartphone?

We’ve come across the Seebright’s AR/VR head-mounted display prototype, which has a peculiar feature. Instead of being a stand-alone heads-up display, what it does is mount your current smartphone on-top of it, so that you can mirror it to your eyes content. Obviously the biggest challenge for this product is the fact that your smartphone is pretty-much worthless if you can’t interact with the display, and hey, we’re sure this company has thought about this and brought some sort of a solution.

The current verdict is that the product is uncomfortable, and we’re sure that those of you rocking any version of the Galaxy Note will agree. Let’s see if this product gains any traction when it launches its Kickstarter campaign next month.
