A new piece of hardware turns your iPhone into entire virtual reality world.
The Pinć – pronounced “pinch” – is being touted on crowdfunding site IndieGogo as a £57 VR headset which brings your phone vividly to life.
Milan Baic, of Cordon Media, the company which hopes to bring the Pinć to market, said: “Imagine surfing the web, watching videos or shopping on your iPhone, all in virtual reality.
“It has integrated controllers – little rings that go on your fingers – that allow you to interact with the device.”
Cordon Media intends to launch the device in June 2015.
Mr Baic, 28, of Toronto, said: “We’re currently at the prototype stage and we’re looking for market validation. If there is a demand for our product, we will build it, and if there isn’t, we won’t. We are shipping worldwide and we will be making deliveries to the UK.”
“Instead of reinventing the wheel, we wanted to take the current hardware and make it work with VR technology.”
Cordon Media hopes that Pinć will revolutionise mobile gaming.
Mr Baic said: “When we can control mobile applications in 3D environments, we get into a new realm of computing.
“We see the opportunity for VR as much broader than just gaming. Areas like everyday computing, shopping and entertainment are very interesting for us.”
