Another Pocket sized VR Headset on Kickstarter
UPDATE 21-02-2016: The Goblin VR Kickstarter Caimpaign has been cancelled.
The Goblin, by Goblin VR, is a groundbreaking, smartphone-powered virtual reality headset that fits in your pocket. It’s a reinvention of Google Cardboard - based on that platform but vastly improved. A sleeker, more comfortable VR experience built around portability, immersion and fun.
The inventors of Goblin VR believe their patent-pending Pop-Out Black-Out (POBO) technology will become the standard for mid-market VR headsets and state that the combination of pocket-sized and full-immersion is available only in The Goblin. POBO houses the lenses and allows the headset to fold flat. Easy-release hinges attached to the doors and main body hold the mask in place.
Direct competitors are the EvoMade Viewbox, Figment VR, Moggles and Speck Pocket VR. All except the Evomade Viewbox are still to come to the market.
It must be a tough fight against all these VR Headsets hitting the market this year.
The Goblin VR is not expensive, has a conductive Cardboard v2 button and is foldable which could mean this is a good Cardboard v2 substitute for those who want a little bit more.
Goblin VR support smartphones with screen sizes from 4 inch till 6 inch.
This means the iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, 6S, 6 plus and 6S plus should fit.
- Pocket sized dimensions
- Fully immersive with zero light bleed
- 35mm lenses
- Conductive input button for gaming
- Lightweight at under 100 grams
- Optional strap for hands-free flexibility
- Carry case for extra protection.
