Walmart VR goggles after 1 week

The quality is hopeless, compared to any other method. There's no way to survive watching a movie in VR goggles. Tried a phone with 2560x1440 resolution. The screen was chopped off in the corners & the screen door effect was more obvious than the 1920x1080 phone. As the pixels get smaller, the proportion comprised by the gaps grows. Only objects behind the screen are viewable. Objects in front of the screen are too close to your eyes, in the goggles.

They do have a niche. They're flat out, the only way to view 3D color images on a phone & they're cheaper than all the other methods. Medical visualization might benefit from this kind of portable 3D imaging. By the time smartphones appeared, the 3D craze was gone. Phone support for polarized glasses only lasted for the 1st few years, on some rare models. There are no shutter glasses with IR dongle commercially available for phones. The era of shutter glasses is over.

Lions are some of the few animals to have watched movies using shutter glasses as well as polarized glasses. The shutter glasses for IMAX were real painful & left a mark on your forehead. They had a small amount of ghosting, even with film. They had extra speakers in the goggles which did nothing. The only movies lions saw with shutter glasses were Space Station 3D & Titanic: ghosts of the abyss. They were quickly replaced by polarized glasses.
