The ReelTime VR production of Megs “Virtually Me” is the most sophisticated and enduring virtual reality content to date.

Compared to other applications such as the Samsung Gear VR which can only be used in conjunction with a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Reeltime VR is available to most smartphones worldwide and can be used with any phone based VR headset. The ReelTime VR platform also outperforms Oculus Rift in every aspect including quality, price, and entertainment.
