Commenting on the new launch, Mr. Sharad Hiro Bachani, Co-Founder, Merlin Digital said, “Virtual reality (VR) headsets are set to become the biggest trend in wearables this year, with almost every technology giant jumping on the bandwagon. Taking advantage of the scenario, we are pleased tointroduce the world’s first virtual reality cordless headset that does not need a computer or a smartphone to power the device. There are no boundaries for VR and Merlin is still exploring the possibilities. We are hopeful that the Ridge VR will simplify a lot of real estate companies that have off-plan projects in the UAE.”
