Product Summary

The View Master Deluxe is a throwback to the retro reels that children once used to experience stereoscopic images in all their glory. With this new, slightly more modernised version of the View Master, Mattel has jumped onto the increasing amount of smartphones that children and parents own.

Differentiating itself from the many headsets out there is the combination of an app and physical disks that you collect to view and explore different educational experiences. Unlike it’s retro counterpart, these disks are scanned via the phone and load within the viewer.

While this headset could be viewed as either an upgrade from a cardboard device or a downgrade from a Samsung Gear VR, it’s certainly a strong and sturdy version that comes with a range of educational resources to keep children both interested and educated.

With this headset you will find that you won't be able to properly use it with glasses, along with their being no room for IPD adjustment. However Mattle have added the ability to adjust focal distances. This will mean that you’ll be able to properly align the lens with your eyes, decreasing the amount blurriness.

Mattel have designed the headset to be used over short periods of time, meaning a headstrap won't be included. Some people argue that this offers an increased sense of immersion and control, while many others prefer for it to rest comfortably on your head.

With the previous View Master there was no option for external audio. However this new, updated model now features an adapter cable to take the audio from the phone to the external side of the headset.

Just like any cardboard type headset, the View Master is able to be used with just about any size phone. This headset is very much dependent on the hardware capabilities of your mobile phone.
