Our goggles were nominated to the product of the year 2016 by the largest computer magazine CHIP!!!
"Da Vinci VR
This new product on the market outclasses all the cardboard competition and even the majority of expensive VR headsets in terms of the image. All this thanks to good quality adjustable lenses which, when adjusted properly, offer the highest image quality. Adjusting the width is not difficult for the average user thanks to the graduation scale on the lenses. Fantastic view angles, very slight distortions and sensational sharpness. Reliable and at the same time quite comfortable despite the lack of pads. They have adjustable head strap. Giving up the magnet in favour of a special stylus is a functional solution thanks to which the switch works with every mobile phone. Easy access at the sides to the phone ports, and even volume buttons if they are closer to the top or bottom edge. Interesting design is another virtue, it stands out from the mass of ordinary rectangular goggles made of cardboard, really similar to the original Google Cardboard. These goggles are universal, they will work with a wide range of mobile phones, from small devices to phablets such as Samsung Galaxy Note. They are worth buying and they possess distinctive image quality.
Field of view: 4/5
"Recently I laid my hands on the Polish model Da Vinci VR, whose creators improved Google's project in a clever way by adding the possibility of adjusting the lenses distance and more precise control. Additionally – which is not seen at the first sight but has a great importance – decent lenses providing really good image quality. By "really good" I mean significantly better than in the plastic model from Aliexpress and Cardboard from Allegro, which I was testing some time ago for my own use."
"Da Vinci VR brings in even more improvements. Da Vinci VR headset is a Polish product designed on the basis of the second generation of Google Cardboard. Like the precursor, Da Vinci VR glasses are also made of cardboard. Nonetheless, they have plenty of improvements and extras.
The most significant distinctive feature of Da Vinci VR is the possibility of adjusting the distance between the lenses. Each lens can be moved sideways by 8 millimetres, which, somewhat surprisingly, gives quite a broad range of adjustment. A good point of this solution is the fact that the lenses may be adjusted to one's pupillary distance, this way minimising the annoying feelings related to using the VR, such as nausea or image distortions.
If you're interested in buying cardboard virtual reality goggles it is worth considering paying some extra money for Da Vinci VR. The adjustable lenses can contribute to greater comfort and the head strap is a tremendous (or rather essential) addition. This offer is the best value for money."
"The lenses, as the producer assures, are of good quality and the image is not blurry. The capacitive button works without any problems. (...) Da Vinci VR is a product worthy of attention. For the price of 40zl you get durable cardboard goggles which can be used to enter the Virtual Reality world trouble-free. They are an example of a well-designed and well-made product, which should be recommended to VR beginners."
"Among many opinions on the cardboard virtual reality there are ones that are critical of it due to unsatisfactory immersion in the virtual world, which can put off people who haven't dealt with the VR technologies before. Surely, this can't be said about the Polish goggles Da Vinci VR, which we had a chance to put to test recently. The device, compared to the competition, stands out not only because it's durable, but also because it gives possibilities that other products do not. Credit for that goes mostly to the high quality lenses. Moreover, Da Vinci VR goggles are the only European product of that type that enables adjustment of the distance between the lenses. Obviously the effect in large measure depends on the screen resolution of the used smartphone. Nevertheless, what we were able to achieve, and that is clear and sharp image, has to make an impression if we look at the price of the goggles. Da Vinci VR goggles are equipped with a patented capacitive button, which after being pressed by the user's finger touches the display conducting the electric charge from the finger to the smartphone screen. This way the compatibility problem has been solved. The only objection we have is related to the smartphone width, which should be more than 6cm, so the capacitive button could reach the screen. Another advantage of the Polish goggles over the competition is the adjustable head strap. The original Cardboard goggles can't be head-mounted firmly which makes using the device for a long time simply unpleasant. What does it look like in the case of Da Vinci? Surprisingly well. The strap is comfortable and the user doesn't feel any discomfort during longer VR sessions. The fact that the goggles are really well adjusted to facial structures is also a plus. To sum up, Da Vinci VR goggles are worth recommending. They're only slightly more expensive than the competition and without any doubt you should consider buying them if you're thinking about a purchase of cheap, mobile VR goggles. More information on the purchase can be found on the official website of Da Vinci VR."
