The OWL Virtual Reality Kit takes the existing OWL Stereo Viewer and, through use of a simple but ingenious adaptor, enables its use with a smart phone not only to view online 3-D images, but also those taken by the user, and commercially available virtual reality content. Manufactured from high-grade polypropylene, and fully collapsible to a thin flat configuration, the OWL is supplied ready for use in seconds. Its carefully positioned high-quality optical lenses, plus fully adjustable focus, present every user with the ideal optical geometry for perfect viewing of side-by-side 3-D images.

Brian Takes Stereo Photos with a Smartphone

 

Virtual Reality From Brian May. It's real. 

Lifelong stereoscopy enthusiast and collector, and, incidentally, world-famous rock guitarist, Brian May launches the OWL Virtual Reality Kit, a Virtual Reality and 3-D stereo image viewer that brings all the excitement of VR within reach of anyone with a smart phone. 

Brian’s London Stereoscopic Company has been supplying his unique original patent OWL Stereo Viewer to 3-D enthusiasts since 2009, enabling a whole new audience to view the company’s reproductions of classic Victorian stereo cards, as well as the originals, plus recently released astronomy and Queen-focused 3-D images.  The OWL has been recognised and adopted by 3-D organisations world-wide, as a high quality immersive device.

Working with any smart phone, the OWL Virtual Reality Kit has a significant advantage over most other VR devices, which are usually tied to jut one particular make or model of phone. And, in contrast with most of the low cost viewers available, the OWL kit offers full access to the controls on the phone at all times. Access to the headphone socket is also unobstructed. This is particularly useful when using the OWL to watch virtual reality films of concerts, or other content with a soundtrack. It also enables users to connect their smart phone to a home cinema system to generate surround sound to complement the 360° 3-D visuals.

Commenting on the launch, Brian May said, “Virtual Reality has taken the consumer electronics world by storm over recent months and masses of content is now rapidly becoming available. However, until now, users have had the choice of an expensive VR viewer that puts it out of reach of many people or a very low cost alternative that just doesn’t do the format justice.” He continues, “The OWL Virtual Reality Kit  changes all that; for a very modest outlay, anyone can now enjoy the VR experience, and also gain access to the fascinating world of Stereoscopy. Plus, with the apps that are available for smart phones, it’s now possible to take your own 3-D images and enjoy them instantly using this simple OWL Kit.”

First saw this when it was a prototype at astrofest. A lot of my stereos are now on my phone now I'm constantly uploading. This is a great little device, use it all the time.

Many thanks for the great customer service. I can't believe we received our order, here in The Caribbean, just two days after placing it .

My children are amazed that this technology existed in the Victorian times. They can't wait to show all their friends - neither can I, to be honest.
