A virtual reality headset has been designed specifically for in-flight use. An entertainment system called AlloSky was developed by SkyLights that allows people to watch 2D, 3D, or 180-degree videos within the lenses.
The lenses differ from older models in that they are 60 percent lighter than the older versions. This of course will allow for better comfort and longer wearability. They are designed to stream content from 20th Century Fox, Dreamworks, Warner Brothers, National Geographic, Lionsgate, and BBC.

SkyLights CEO David Dicko spoke out about the new design this week.
“It has always been of fundamental importance to us to offer airlines an immersive-IFE solution that leverages the best immersive headset available for the inflight use case. We have now been able to do exactly that, using our experience from thousands of flights deployed with our current solution in the design of the AlloSky headset to meet the needs of passengers and airlines alike.”
