Our Thoughts: The makers of AirVR have realised there is a gap in the HMD market. Everyone is making VR headsets that work by slotting a smartphone into them, but no-one is working with tablets, and the one they want to start with is the iPad Mini. But is AirVR going a step too far? And is is going to be willing to use a headset that is almost twice as heavy as most other mobile VR headsets and twice as big!?

Some people will say that the reason no-one has thought about doing this before is because a tablet is a little too heavy to be hanging off your face! But for those of us who have stronger heads we could have better graphics, sound and a massive screen size! The iPad Mini is a great start because it is light, fast and can showcase just about anything any app maker can come up with.
