Message from the Representative Director

Hacosco is a smart phone VR service using a simple viewer that can be used with your smart phone, to experience VR (virtual reality) easily.

The existing HMD (head mounted display) VR was expensive and required large-scale equipment and preparation, making it out of reach for most normal people.

I, having researched neuroscience using virtual reality for a long time, created Hacosco based on the concept of an easier, anytime/anywhere VR experience that anybody can use.

In line the name Haco (box in Japanese) + scope = Hacosco , it is a minimal design putting a lens in cardboard that can be used with your smart phone, but allows an immersive VR experience similar to the existing HMD.

With Hacosco, we have delivered a virtual reality space that you can enjoy easily anytime, anywhere in a world inside a box.
