Recently, we’ve had a number of requests from you guys, asking for some simple and accessible virtual reality (VR) glasses recommendations to use with Kubity. And so, here they are! Championing affordability, portability and comfort, these two VR glasses can help you instantly visualize your SketchUp and Revit models:

Homido mini

The King of Convenience, the Lord of Lightweight, this palm-sized pair folds up easily and fits neatly in your pocket. When you need it, simply open it out and place your smartphone into the rubber-lined crocodile clip, behind the eyeglasses. A steal at $10.

A few reasons we like it:

  1. It adapts to the thickness of the average iPhone or Android smartphones – 4-6 inches.
  2. Screen-touching galore! You can interact with the screen with your fingers to move around.
  3. Durable indeed, a drop won’t be earth-shattering.
  4. There’s no fashion cost – goodbye head-hugging straps!
  5. You can keep your glasses on.

Viewmaster

Reincarnated from a retro image viewer for kids, it was an ingenious move for Mattel to relaunch this as a VR accessory for both adults and kids. Hugely affordable for a fun, immersive experience, the Viewmaster is another instant VR gem. You open up the set and pop your phone into the holder for full immersion. Another bargain at $40.

  4. No need to assemble it- there’s an easy-open latch and a holder for your smartphone.
