The Pinć– pronounced “pinch” — doubles as a standard protective smartphone case and unfolds into a headset, strap included. In addition to the ring controllers, it also comes with a free virtual reality app.

      I had a chance to try this device out in Toronto and absolutely loved it. I felt like Tom Cruise in Minority Report. I can’t wait to see what features it comes with when it is released! I like your thinking Adam
