View-Master 2.0 Offers Virtual Reality Features
For over 75 years, generations of kids have been introduced to the wonder of stereoscopic 3D by View-Master. Today Mattel is reimagining an entirely new way to explore and discover the world around you.
Mattel's new View-Master offers an easy-to-use and affordable platform that will enable users to take engaging field trips where they can explore famous places, landmarks, nature, planets and more in 360 degree ‘photospheres'. By pairing the View-Master's ‘experience reel' and app with an Android smartphone, kids will immediately experience an imaginative and interactive learning environment.
The new "View-Master 2.0" version will launch on Android devices first, but the companies plan to make it available on other platforms later.
