ZapBox is a mixed reality gaming system that provides an affordable alternative to other virtual reality products and games.

The ZapBox system comes with four different products – a cardboard headset, a series of "pointcodes" that are used as markers that allow the game to interpret the user's location, cardboard controllers that are tracked when they are in view of the camera and a lens adapter that increases the field of view on the user's smartphone camera. The system provides mixed reality games that appear in the physical space that users are in, but do so in a way that is affordable.

This gaming system provides the perfect alternative for individuals who want to engage with virtual reality but cannot afford to do so with most other options on the market.
