A stylus designed to be used as an input device in virtual environments reached its $100,000 Kickstarter funding goal in less than a day this week.
The Phree stylus from Tel Aviv-basedÂ OTM Technologies Ltd. can be used as a virtual pen that writes on any surface and could potentially be used as an input deviceÂ within virtual or augmented reality environments.
â€œWhen youâ€™re immersed in virtual reality, you canâ€™t see whatâ€™s around you,â€ OTM co-CEO Gilad Lederer said in an interview with Re/code. â€œWhen I hold this, I can do any action with it: Point and click, enter text, scribble, move it like a joystick.â€
It communicates with a mobile device or computer via Bluetooth.
It’s set to start shipping next April, and the Kickstarter price starts at $148 each.
