New Agreements Increase Growth Across Two Continents
SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Merge VR, a leader in mobile virtual reality, announced today that its popular Merge VR Goggles are now sold in retail outlets in Spain, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, and India. Already available in the US, Canada and the UK, new partnerships significantly increase the retail presence of Merge VR Goggles worldwide.
"With virtual reality topping holiday gift lists this season, growing demand has created new opportunities to share our universal, easy-to-use Merge VR Goggles," said Merge EVP Dan Worden. "We get inquiries every day from people all over the world who want to buy the goggles, so it's really exciting to announce that they're now available in more countries, with more coming soon."
Merge is focused on aligning with top-tier retailers and global partners, such as Spain's El Corte Ingles that will carry the goggles in more than 200 of its retail stores.
More U.S. consumers than ever – roughly 170 million people – plan to buy technology gifts this holiday season, according to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™. The CTA reports virtual reality, drones and wearables will top holiday wish lists with spending on tech reaching $36.05 billion during this 2016 holiday season.
Merge VR Goggles are the only VR goggles approved for ages 10 and up, and they have recently been recognized by Consumer Reports as an Expert Pick and by CNN as a great headset for "Big Kids and Tweens". The marshmallow-soft body, easy-to-clean material and high-quality adjustable lenses make them perfect for sharing with the whole family.
Merge provides its users access to hundreds of apps and experiences with www.VRSTART.com -- a curated library of high-quality games and experiences, including travel, meditation, 360° videos, music, education, and more. All content is tested for quality and age appropriateness, and given ratings for intensity level and user feedback. The goggles are also compatible with all VR apps currently available on iOS or Android.
