While Google Cardboard gives consumers an inexpensive way to access VR content, a new device called Pockulus is taking a different approach to the goal of democratizing virtual reality.
Unlike other VR headsets, the Pockulus console is packaged as a tiny circuit board called CHIP. Those who want to use the mini computer then need to print the accompanying headset to complete the set. While this process may seem tedious, the idea is that CHIP serves in the place of a smartphone so that users can enjoy a phone-free VR experience. This is not only a less expensive option, but is also allows users to create a headset that is perfectly tailored to fit their head.
The DIY VR console ultimately empowers users to create their own VR experience, while simultaneously making the technology more affordable.
