I Am Cardboard — known for their Google Cardboard virtual reality smartphone cases made out of cardboard or EVA foam — is moving up-scale. Its latest design, XG VR, has already raised $70,000 on Kickstarter, well past its $20,000 goal with 22 days left to go.

It’s certainly one of the more attractive smartphone cases, though, at $70, not the cheapest. According to the company, it will start shipping the cases worldwide this May.
