Our Thoughts: The problem with the FEELREAL mask for the Oculus Rift is you need an Oculus Rift to attach it to! That is where the NIRVANA VR comes into it. It’s a multi-sensory helmet that in reality is a smartphone mountable HMD. They have made this so people who can’t yet afford a full on VR headset can at least experience smells and senses of the wind, heat, water mist and vibration present in the virtual worlds they visit.

While the display is only as good as the smartphone placed inside of it the helmet does do a lot on its own. Giving you a broad field of view and a 3D audio system that provides you with the most immersive sound experience you can get. Along with the other aspects like being able to feel wind, water and heat as well as being able to smell things even with the crappiest of smartphones it will still blow you away with what it can do. Not quite as good as an Oculus Rift with an FEELREAL mask attached, but’s it’s pretty darn good.
