The Dynamic Viewer is a virtual reality headset which enables users to view things in 3D and virtual reality by way of their smartphones. By connecting to smartphones, users can load certain experiences and their corresponding apps onto their phone and begin experiencing stem in 3D. It is intended for children, allowing them a more dynamic and engaging way of learning about the world in which we live and the solar system which surrounds it. In spite of the expense, it makes stem a more accessible area of academics for kids and for young adults who use the Dynamic Viewer.
The cost of Dynamic Viewer is $29.99 plus $6.99 shipping, for a total price of $36.98. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: dynamicviewer.com
The unit itself is lightweight because it is made from durable plastic parts perfect for use by kids.
It operates wirelessly so there is no chance of being caught in wires.
There are noise isolating ear buds. The eye rest has a cushion around it so that it fits nicely without pressure. Both lenses are HD Dual Focus.
It will work with almost all smartphones. There is a list of the compatible phones, including older iPhone 5 models and Android models.
There is a lock-in secure feature to hold smartphones in place. It is a large drop down panel of sorts into which the smartphone is placed and the free virtual reality apps are selected. Once this is sorted, the drop down panel is locked back into place.
The device makes it easy to place 3D video games. Video games played at home, like Wii bowling, can now be played in a 3D version just like the real thing. Movies can also be watched on the device, not just games. This means that standard 3D films can be viewed effortlessly at home just by putting on the headset.
This product users smartphones to display the virtual reality experiences, which are interactive and run the gambit from destinations to space to wildlife. The idea is that this device should be fun for children and encourage better appreciation for science and technology.
It is interactive and lets users explore a range of things. For the space pack, they can travel through the solar system, manipulate the planet, read facts as they go along, play games that demonstrate how gravities change on various celestial bodies too.
The site is a bit dated, as it claims that the product is not sold in stored but it is now offered on Amazon. This Dynamic Viewer is only thirty dollars in stores and online. When ordered online, the company provides a guarantee for customers. Without complete satisfaction and the best virtual experience, they can get money back. It comes with the Dynamic Viewer, in addition to ear bugs, two viewer optimizers, and a free virtual reality app.
The experience packs come with their own app, rather than having access to a single app which links to all experiences. This means that if a user wants to change their pack, such as changing from the space pack to the destinations pack, they have to do the following. They have to exit out of the program, open the front, change to the destinations app, and then close it back up.
The company claims this product is suitable for anyone over the age of 7. However the latch which keeps the smartphone storage area secure can take some maneuvering so not all 7 year old children are up to the task.
Like all things, there is a catch. Here, the catch with this product revolves around the experience packs. The starter kit comes with 1. Clearly this is insufficient. There are tons of experience kits but each new pack is fifteen dollars. This means each view pack is half the cost of the viewer, so users are actually quite limited in what they get to experience in virtual reality.
The product itself is a similar item to that of Google Cardboard. It is also similar to the Samsung Gear Virtual Reality item which is a mobile phone driven HMD too. The prices for all of these products are similar in price too.

I love this viewer! I found it at Wegman's for $17.99
I took it to Family Fun Day at my daughter's and had to leave it for her, So as soon as I got back home I got another for myself.
All the kids loved it.
It dosen't come with the bundle listed on their website, only the headset. Game controller is only if you buy it from the website. Lots of apps online.

I ordered and they have not shipped it and I ordered fast shipping. How long does it take? I called and phone will not work either as well as the email. I'm wondering if I should have ordered through the website.
