However, it could torture your wallet.

Bigscreen VR is best known for its “virtual living room” software, but the company could make waves with its first virtual reality headsets. Ironically, Bigscreen Beyond is the “world’s smallest” VR headset, prioritizing comfort and a bespoke design; Yes, it is customized for each client.

While other VR headsets are bulky and monstrous, the Bigscreen Beyond is more like a pair of ski goggles. It weighs just under 6 oz (about 0.3 pounds) with a strap, wears ultra-thin pancake lenses, and can be customized to your face if you have a Face ID-enabled iPhone. Simply provide a scan of your face during checkout. (Vision impaired people must also pay for prescription glasses. Astigmatism correction is included, depending on your prescription.)

Of course, this custom design helps Bigscreen achieve a smaller form factor. Instead of plastering your headset with adjustable knobs and other accessories, Beyond tailors each headset to the user. The downside is that any friends or family members who try your Bigscreen Beyond headphones may not have the best experience, especially if they need a prescription. That being said, you can order various head pads and prescription lenses as they are hot swappable.

Interestingly, Bigscreen Beyond doesn’t make too many compromises. It uses a pair of 5K 90Hz OLED displays, offers a 93-degree horizontal FOV (which is decent), and tracks motion with six degrees of freedom. Beyond VR promises that this device’s three-element pancake lenses will eliminate screen-door effect, which is something we’ll have to try in person. (We’ve heard this promise too many times, and it’s never true.)

Of course, this is not an all-in-one VR headset. You need to connect with a gaming PC (via a link box) and it is compatible with the SteamVR platform. So the Bigscreen Beyond isn’t a replacement for the Meta Quest, but it could compete with the HTC Vive or the Valve Index.

Pre-orders for Bigscreen Beyond start at $999. But here’s the catch; It doesn’t include any controllers, or a full body tracker, or even a SteamVR base station. You must order these components separately; That said, Bigscreen Beyond is compatible with Valve Index and HTC Vive controllers, along with HTC’s full body trackers.
