If you’ve been following along with us on Twitter, you know that last year we sold our first ever virtual reality (VR) headset for $2.9 million. It’s an expensive VR headset. It doesn’t come cheap. In fact, the priciest one we know of is the Oculus Rift. But this particular headset was different. It was the first ever nift-n-trick virtual reality headset that didn’t require you to own a phone or computer in order to use it. It was the First Tweet.
This year, we’re going to sell it all over again. Or at least, we’re going to sell it IF we can get someone to buy it. We launched the campaign, and it didn’t take long for us to discover that we’d made a big mistake.
This virtual reality headset was originally going to be a challenge to sell. But after weeks of development and a tonne of research, we’ve discovered that it’s actually a pretty easy sell. So, this time, we’re taking the chance and inviting you to buy a piece of history. Or, at the very least, the first nift-n-trick virtual reality headset you’ll ever need.
What is Virtual Reality?
VR is a technology that allows you to take your computer vision and computer algorithms and put them into your VR headset. It’s similar to what happens when you look at a picture on a computer monitor or smartphone screen and see an image that’s three-dimensional and lifelike. You might think that you can do that with a $2.9 million VR headset, but in reality, it’s even more advanced than that.
The most advanced VR headsets today use software that runs on your computer and stacks up to six cameras on each side of your head to create a realistic 3D experience. These types of software can deliver incredible experiences, making you feel as if you’re really there with the device strapped to your head. But there’s a catch.
You have to pay for this software, and even then, it’s not free. You have to lease it for the amount of time you want and then you have to buy it back at the end of the term. So, it’s not something you can just drop some money into and forget about it. It cost a lot of money to create the software, and it costs even more to run.
How VR headsets work
First, we need to understand how a VR headset works so we can better market our product. Basically, it’s a headset with a lot of sensors and cameras on board that let you create a “virtual reality” (VR) environment for your computer vision system. You can see this technology in action with the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and the like.
When you put on the VR headset, you become part of a shared “narrative” with other people. You can look around, walk around, and even sit down in the virtual environment. But what makes VR unique is that you can interact with the VR environment in different ways. You can look around, sit down, stand up, spin around, and even lean in different directions. You can also look behind you and see what your virtual environment looks like from the other side.
You can imagine the VR headset as a huge pair of glasses with a camera on the front. When you look through the glasses, you see what’s in front of you. But what happens when you close your eyes? You end up in a completely different environment where you see things differently and have a much more realistic view of the world around you.
Why you want to buy a VR headset
There are many reasons people buy a VR headset. Some people want to try VR for the novelty value. They want to see what it’s like and then decide if it’s something they want to invest in for themselves. Others want to use VR for work or for gaming. There are even a few niche groups of people who want to use VR for medical purposes. There are certainly many other reasons, but those are the main ones.
People also buy VR headsets because they want to experience new things. Some people want to try different activities or go to new places with their VR setup. Some people just want to sit back and relax while they watch TV or listen to their favorite playlist in VR. There are many different uses for VR, and people buy it for different reasons.
What we’re offering people who buy our VR headset
We’ve spent the last three years developing this VR headset, and we’re ready to sell it. But first, we have to get it in the hands of as many people as possible. That’s why we’re doing this Kickstarter campaign. We want to make sure as many people as possible can get their hands on this incredible technology.
We’re very excited about the VR experience we’re bringing to life with this Kickstarter. You’ll be able to experience first-hand how this technology works and what it’s like to walk around and look around in a virtual environment. You’ll be able to feel what it’s like to be there in a physical and virtual sense. You’ll be able to interact with the environment in real-time in ways that you can’t normally do. You’ll be able to see, hear, and even feel the world around you.
We’re hoping to get the whole world involved in this incredible new technology. We’re also planning on having a lot of fun with it, too. We want to create engaging content that allows people to experience VR in a variety of different ways. From exploring a new city to going on vacation and seeing the world from a different perspective, there are plenty of adventures you can take with your VR setup.
The First Tweet
The first virtual reality Kickstarter campaign ever was for the VR headset we sold last year. We created a Kickstarter campaign that was way ahead of its time. It set the bar for all future campaigns by being bold, creative, and full of promise. We created a campaign that promised so much that we even included a photo of a man wearing a VR headset, a word-of-mouth-driven business that we believe in, and a campaign that we believe in deeply.
The fails of our VR campaign
We honestly didn’t expect the campaign to be as successful as it was. We didn’t expect it to be as popular as it was. We didn’t expect it to be as meaningful as it was. But all of that has happened, and now it’s time to put all of that hard work into making the product people want and deserve. The campaign was a great start, but it was just the beginning. Now, we need to provide the best possible product to make the campaign a success.
The virtual reality market is still very small and has been largely unexplored. We are only just scratching the surface when it comes to the potential of VR and how it can change our world. One company that is leading the charge is Facebook-owned Oculus, who has created an eye-opening virtual reality experience that has merited praise from critics and believers alike.
The price of entry for the VR experience isn’t very expensive, either. You can try out the Rift for free before you buy it. In fact, if you love tech, you probably already have a VR setup at home. You just need to try it out and see what you think.
