“…featuring the best thing of all…Virtual Reality Lights!!!”
From the same people who brought you the VR 3D: Orbiter 9 comes the Virtual Reality Headset Walkie Talkies! This was a toy headset that featured such amazing things such as voice activated operation for hands-free fun, flexible antenna & microphone and featuring the best thing of all…Virtual Reality Lights!!!
Released in 1995 this is a great toy that sadly would have only lead to people being confused as to what virtual reality was. But is that any different to marketing these days? Technically Google Cardboard isn’t a VR viewer, its a 3D stereoscopic viewer! It seems people (and marketing teams) just love the words ‘Virtual Reality’ and with the right sort of headset (not this one) you can be captured with those words and taken to magical places. The headset did the same thing, but only if you used your imagination.
