Canadian technology company, Cordon has introduced an iPhone 6 case accessory along with free app known as Pinc. The case provides a virtual reality platform, which allows users to interact with visuals similar to a Leap Motion controller. This is the first VR platform that will fit in your pocket.
The iPhone is used as normal phone but the case converts it into a smartphone to unfold into a virtual reality headset with integrated controllers. The concept used here is called ‘spatial computing’, where the platform turns browsing, multi-tasking and shopping into an immersive virtual reality experience. Further, the sturdy case converts it into a wearable device that enables anyone to virtually step into their phone.
Pinć, pronounced as pinch, expands the interaction capabilities of mobile devices by using virtual reality and control technology. It dramatically expand the interaction, work as well as viewing area. Moreover, navigation is controlled by wireless rings accompanied with it and are worn on the index fingers. The user when puts on the rings, then pinches it in order to ‘click’ with their hands.
Milan Baic, President of Cordon and leader of the Pinć product development, said: “We see the opportunity for VR as much broader than just gaming. Areas like everyday computing, shopping and entertainment are very interesting for us. When we can control mobile applications in 3D environments, we get into a new realm of computing.”
