About: EXCHIMP AI1 is an all-in-one virtual reality headset that is at the same time lightweight, mobile and it has a very sharp QHD display. You just put on the VR headset and let yourself go … immersed in space, on a rollercoaster, spotting elephants or enjoying a 360° video.
You don’t need a computer or a game console for using EXCHIMP AI1 as this all-in-one VR system includes pre-installed content such as games and videos out of the box (based on stretch goals). Additionally, you can download any VR game or app from the Google Play Store via Wi-Fi. With the internal memory of 32 GB there is enough space for all your VR content and you can pimp it with a Micro SD card.

Our Thoughts: There was always going to be a high level of disappointment with this headsets backers and boy, were most of them very angry indeed. Just check out the comments to find out most of the headsets delivered didn’t really work, a lot of people returned the headsets for repair and never got them back and for those few who got their headsets to work, the disappointment is felt in some very strong language indeed. Sadly it seems this is one Kickstarter I am glad we didn’t back.
