Viewmaster VR

Mattel wollen ihren ollen Viewmaster zusammen mit Google fit für's 21. Jahrhundert machen und in ein Virtual Reality-Spielzeug umbauen:

View-Master

View-Master is both a physical product as well as a software platform that is targeted towards kids to deliver age-appropriate content, so children can “explore and learn about famous places, landmarks, nature, planets and more in 360 degree photospheres” that also promises to be interactive when pairing the View-Master’s ‘experience reel’ and special Android app.

‘Experience reels’ may look like the old cardboard stereoscopic reels, but through a yet unreleased method (likely NFC badges that allow access to proprietary downloads) include adventure and science-oriented destinations, each with multiple areas for explorations.
