The popularity of virtual reality (VR) content is rising, so products like the 'Goblin' Folding VR Viewer have been developed to help offer a more portable option for users. Designed with a flatpack aesthetic that enables the headset to be brought almost anywhere, the 'Goblin' is a marriage of high-quality aesthetics and portability.

Currently funding on Kickstarter, the 'Goblin' utilizes a smartphone in order to operate, which enables users of all kinds to get involved without requiring extensive equipment other than the headset. The incorporation of the smartphone into new product developments like with the 'Goblin' Folding VR Viewer enhances user experience and appeals to cost-conscious consumers who aren't quite ready for dedicated peripherals to enjoy VR.
