6) Remote control of the VR glasses
- Magic Horizons GmbH offers a remote control for the VR glasses with Magic Horizons VR software. This remote control app is available for Android and Apple iOS devices (for Tablets and Smartphones) and can be downloaded free of charge from the corresponding app stores.
- Note 1: The remote control via Android or Apple iOS device works via the customer’s Wi-Fi network. In order to see a video out of the VR glasses, a fast customer Wi-Fi network with a fast Internet connection is required. If the customer’s Wi-Fi network and the corresponding Internet connection are not fast enough, it is possible that the video from the VR glasses is not shown and the VR glasses might react to the commands of the remote control with a delay. The trouble-free function of the remote control is exclusively dependent on the customer’s Wi-Fi network and Internet. Magic Horizons GmbH has no influence on this.
- Note 2: The “Photonengine” service from the company Exit Games is used for the technical remote control of the VR glasses and the option of speaking to the users in the VR glasses via a virtual microphone. Further details on data protection of the company Exit Games can be found here: https://dashboard.photonengine.com/account/gdpr
- Note 4: Operating the VR glasses with the Magic Horizons VR software is of course also possible with the VR glasses only in stand alone mode – without a remote control. The remote control is just a free additional feature.
- We explicitly point out that Magic Horizons GmbH shall not be held liable in connection with the use of this remote control function.
