In order to make their product competitive, Archos has decided to sell a novelty record low price: just £ 24,99 ($ 29,99). It is much cheaper than Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift or Sony Project Morpheus.

Glasses are universal, but the manufacturer recommends the use of smart phones with high-resolution screen and a diagonal of at least 5 inches. It is desirable to have at least a 4-core processor and a full set of motion sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, etc.).
