BEYOND- VR headset designed for children
BEYOND – BVR Telescope is a technological product designed for children. By setting up panoramic interactive machines in famous scenic spots around the world, it enables children located anywhere to experience global sights with a pair of VR binoculars.
BEYOND’s panoramic interactive machine allows messages – written or drawn on a giant poster – to be sent to children on the other end. The product aims to help children expand their minds from a young age. Under the guidance of teachers, BEYOND can also be brought into a classroom setting for cultural exchanges. It is also designed with a supervision function. When set to “parent” mode, it prevents underage, inappropriate or harmful information from reaching the children, thus protecting their eyes and ears.
To connect, simply set up BEYOND’s panoramic interactive machines in various famous scenic spots around the world. This product integrates the following functions: game, education, social networking and sharing, etc. A child can tour the world while communicating with other local children. 
BEYOND consists of two parts – a connectable VR-based WIFI binoculars and an interactive screen with a panoramic camera. The former has functions such as adjustable focus, adjustable screen, cable charging, voice calling, and more; the latter is meant to be placed in different scenic locations. Through the binoculars, a kid can also see the people who are in front of the camera and vice versa. People around the panoramic camera can communicate in real-time with the kids behind the binoculars.
The Beyond VR is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2017.
