Figment VR iPhone Virtual Reality Headset

Figment VR promises to bring VR to your pocket

This new Kickstarter project created by Quantum Bakery LLC just started and is already almost 50% funded

Update 23-12-2015: The Figment VR Kickstarter project already has more than 150% of it's funding goal with 20 days to go!

iPhone

Figment VR is design to work with your iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6S Plus.

Specifications

  • Weight: Approx. 30 grams / 2 oz
  • Material: Polycarbonate plastic coated in silicone rubber for protection
  • Bridge material: grade anodized aluminium
  • Lenses are scratch resistant
  • Colors: Black and white (and champagne if they hit the Kickstarter stretch goal)

30 grams is extreme light weighted if you compare it to its price competitors Homido VR, Freefly VR and VRizzmo.

Figment VR is a multipurpose device. It also works as an iPhone kickstand and it gives you access to the homebutton, side buttons and front and back camera.

The immersion won't be the same though because it doesn't have any frame surrounding the iPhone to protect your eyes from external light.

How does it work

Figment is a VR viewer folded into a sleek iPhone case. It’s pocket-sized, so you can bring it anywhere, and it’s in a phone case, so you actually will bring it everywhere. Because it works with almost all VR apps, you can view or share an immersive VR experience anywhere you are.

The viewer folds in completely, making Figment as slim as the average phone case, and you can get to all of your buttons and ports with ease.

  1. This company used kickstarter to build these then sold them to urbanoutfitters and never sent any units to the backers. Bunch of scammers
