Review: While at first it looks fun and there are lots of images to look at you would be forgiven for thinking they would at the very least be 360 photosheres. Nope! Just plain old images here. The idea is rather than glimpsing at art or photography like a regular image you can get a feeling of depth by using a mobile VR headset! That sounds good at first until you realise it simply doesn’t work. When you look around the image in the front it looks flat, but OK. Try to move your head past the image and the image stops moving because there is no more to display. This sudden halt makes you feel instantly sick and you will soon become lightheaded. Having said that the images do look nice and having them displayed so close to the face does give you a might impression of depth. Our advice is don’t use this with a VR headset, just hold your phone and see them that way.
