Wearality has shown for the first time in public its virtual reality adapter for mobile phones that stands out for its 150º viewing angle, developed with Lockheed Martin technology. He seems to have impressed everyone.
The B&N demo held in San Jose has been the event chosen to show Wearality. There are several comments on Reddit from people who have tried it and it seems that they are not lying about the FOV.
I was at the demo today and chatted with them for a while. The FOV is all they cry out for. There are no major distortions in anything (and the mobile screen is much superior to that of the DK2). Actually the FOV goes beyond the phone screen, but this will be solved in the final version. It has given me the impression that they plan to sell their lenses to other manufacturers, but they have not confirmed anything to me. My only complaint is that a mobile device is used instead of a PC, but they seem to be open to other manufacturers adapting them (and there is already a project underway to adapt them to the DK2). I supported the Kickstarter campaign 5 minutes after trying it out.
Meanwhile, the Kickstarter campaign is still underway and already exceeds 50% of the collection with 15 days left, but it seems that it is going to need a strong final push to get ahead. In the campaign FAQ they confirm that they have received Google Cardboard certification and all apps compiled with the latest SDK will work perfectly with the correct FOV settings.
