LAS VEGAS – (January 6, 2016) – At CES 2016 Speck unveiled their first pocket-friendly virtual reality viewer to give consumers a quick and easy VR experience with a compact and collapsible design. Not only will users be able to enjoy VR experiences from the convenience of their smartphone, they’ll receive the added benefit of Speck’s military-grade protective CandyShell Grip smartphone case, which is included with the viewer.
Additionally, Speck is announcing their partnership with the world leader in cinematic VR, Jaunt, with whom they have created a custom viewing experience specifically for CES. “Combining Speck’s innovative designs and Jaunt’s world-class content, we’ve created the best possible virtual reality experience for everyday tech users,” said Miles Perkins, VP Marketing Communications at Jaunt.
Pocket VR is a Google Cardboard-certified viewer created by the award-winning Speck design team. When opened, Pocket VR and its precision-crafted lenses provide a rich viewing experience for 3D content, virtual reality, and augmented reality. When closed, retractable side panels fold into a perfectly flat, self-contained package that shields lenses from dust and scratches, and slides easily into a pocket or purse for on-the-go accessibility.
Speck’s best-selling CandyShell Grip smartphone case is the perfect companion to Pocket VR, which securely grips onto the case when in use. When not in use, the viewer can be easily stowed while CandyShell Grip will continue to provide smartphones with military-grade protection against everyday bumps and drops.
Pocket VR with CandyShell Grip will be available in Spring 2016 for iPhone 6s/6 and Galaxy S6. The VR viewer and phone case will be sold together as a bundled package for $69.95.
