When developing the new device, dubbed as “Micro VR Kit”, the company has teamed up with WHITE Inc, which is engaged in smartphone VR glasses sales. It has also joined with DENTSU Inc, the worldwide advertising firm in Japan.
In order to create the VR glasses, companies has used the “Origami” paper folding art typical to the culture of Japan. Utilizing the “Origami” as the dev conception of the VR facility, the company enables users to decrease the device sizes so that it easily fits in their hands.
When users fasten their smartphones to the facility, the “accordion folded” part broadens, making the goggle sizes equal to the common VR glasses. The device has only 2 cm thickness. The “Micro VR Kit” includes glasses as Milbox, which has obtained the certification of WWGC (“Works With Google Cardboard”).
