HAMSWAN 3D VR Glasses Giveaway and Super Stocking Stuffer Blog Hop

If you like playing with the latest tech, you may have grabbed one of those early virtual reality (VR) headsets like Google Cardboard. They were a great proof of concept, though a tad expensive and very clunky. On the high end, you have your Oculus and OTC Vibe headsets that ultimately cost over a grand or two when you factor in the cost of a new high-end computer system to run and control the VR environment. On the entry-level front, you have more headsets that use your mobile phone as the display and runtime environment. Bring up a VR app on your phone, place the phone in the headset, and you have a lightweight VR environment.

I had a chance to play with one of these less costly options, the HAMSWAN G04EA headset, available for just $31 from Amazon . And, you have a chance to win it here. Or, you can sign up for the mailing list at the Hamswan site and get 15% off your order.
The HAMSWAN headset is one you place over your head in one of those full head harnesses. It has over-the-ear headphones for the sound after you plug your phone into the audio jack. That means if you have one of those newer phones w/o an audio jack you're out of luck. It has separate adjustment knobs for each eye so you can actually use the device without your glasses if you happen to wear them. With or without glasses, you'll adjust to give you a clear view of the camera. There are even volume control knobs on the headset so you don't have to remove the phone from the headset to adjust audio levels.
Before actually placing the harness over your head, you'll need to download some VR apps from your favorite app store. Just searching for VR apps is sufficient, though you can look for specific things like a roller coaster or Pac Man. Unless you have a Bluetooth/wireless 'mouse' like controller that is paired up with your phone, you'll need to start the app before closing up the front of the headset. Then you're playing / in the VR world. As long as you're using an app that is controlled by head movements (gyroscopically / through the phone's gyroscope), you can enjoy the 3D aspect of the games/apps. Both my son and I really enjoyed the 3D Pac Man-like app. I did have to explain to him about the ghosts and only then can you run into the big guys. Audio came out clearly through the headphones, and we could still hear what was going on around us if need be.
Overall, a fun second generation headset that allows you to enjoy most of the VR apps made for your phone. The most part has to do with if you need to use a hand controller, so no space shooting games unless you also have the wireless mouse.

Want to try one yourself? Either pick one up at Amazon or try to win one below. The giveaway is open to US residents only, who are 18+, and ends on 11/29/17 at 11:59pm EST. See Giveaway Rules for the full set of rules.
