Speck today announced the official launch of its Pocket-VR accessory, a collapsible, portable virtual reality headset designed to be compatible with its line of Candyshell Grip cases. The Pocket-VR was created using Google's Cardboard VR specs, so it is able to display content created for Cardboard.
The Pocket-VR, made of black plastic, comes with a black and gray CandyShell Grip smartphone case, which it snaps over to create a virtual reality viewing experience on the go. When not in use, the Pocket-VR's retractable side panels fold flat, allowing the accessory to be carried easily in a pocket. Speck is offering the Pocket-VR for the iPhone 6 and 6s only, which is not compatible with larger iPhone 6 and 6s Plus models.
Speck's CandyShell Grip case can be used even when the Pocket-VR is stowed away, offering full military-grade drop protection for an iPhone. It includes a raised bezel to protect the screen and it has raised rubber ridges for a solid grip.
