CES 2016: Speck Announces Pocket Virtual Reality for iPhone

 Speck Announces Pocket Virtual Reality for iPhone

Virtual reality is starting to go from a developers-only situation to a common consumer situation. CES in Las Vegas is full of such products, proving that VR is for everyone with the many different companies here showing off their latest and greatest. The first step to getting consumers into the virtual reality market is giving them something familiar and easy to use–Speck has done just that with its new Pocket VR viewer ($69.95, available Spring 2016).

Speck is well known for its smartphone cases, and its Pocket VR viewer is the perfect addition to Speck's line of products. An accessory for your smartphone, the Pocket VR has a simple design and uses your smartphone’s technology to give you a true virtual reality experience. It’s super easy to set up (just pull out on the sides and pop them out to make the sides of the viewer), and works with both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Simply unfold the viewer, slide in your iPhone, and get that “rich viewing experience for 3D concert(s), virtual retail, and augmented reality.” When you're finished, the collapsible design allows the Pocket VR to fold flat and be easily transported anywhere.

Speck VR

If the design looks familiar, you may have seen it with Google’s Cardboard VR headset for Android devices. Speck teamed up with Google for the design, as well as with Jaunt (a well-known company in the cinematic VR market), to bring you a fun, easy, and tested product. Jaunt is well known due to its amazing content and lenses for other VR viewers. Miles Perkins, Jaunt's VP of Marketing Communications said, “Combining Speck’s innovative designs and Jaunt’s world-class content, we’ve created the best possible virtual reality experience for everyday tech users.” The Pocket VR by Speck is a great way to get familiar with VR. The best part is, it won’t cost you very much to take your first steps into a VR world. The Speck Pocket VR includes not only the Pocket VR viewer, but a Speck CandyShell Grip case for your iPhone. Together, both products are sure to give you a taste of VR in a very welcome package.
