Toronto-basedÂ Cordon Media, Inc. has raised more than $21,000 Canadian dollars on a $50,000 Indiegogo campaign for a new virtual reality smartphone headsetÂ that works with both iPhones and Android devices, folds up into a slim 15mm phone case, and comes with an innovative multi-touch gesture interface.
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.
The rings can be used to choose 3D videos to watch, to interact with a map, and even to type on a virtual keyboard.
The basic black case is available for a variety of Android devices for $99 Canadian, or about US$87. A limited edition case in metallic red is available for both Android and iPhone 6 for $149 Canadian, or about US $130.
The campaign ends on December 23. Watch the video below for more information.
