Archos VR Available For Purchase


Talk Android reported previously that Archos was working on a VR headset that would be compatible with most phones, including the Nexus 5, that would offer 360° viewing and would be compatible with apps that run with Google Cardboard.

Well, now you can pick up a set today! For just $36.68 USD, Archos VR won’t set you back too much and if you prefer plastic to cardboard, this may be a nice alternative to Google Cardboard.


The goggles do not have any internal hardware, so there won’t be any need for charging. Just attach your phone in on one side, adjust the clips and you’re good to go. The lenses are also adjustable so if you have certain viewing requirements, this may be of some help.

Head over to Archos’ website to purchase a pair. Link here.
