Virtual reality (VR) has never been this mainstream, with a growing range of accessories that expand the smartphone into an immersive computing experience. Android users can turn to existing platforms like Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard, while iOS users now have Pinc.

Pinc is a VR platform for the iPhone 6 recently launched on Indiegogo. Developed by start-up Cordon Media Inc., the platform includes an iPhone 6 case accessory and free app.

But the best thing about the platform is that it comes with optical control rings worn on index fingers to allow interaction with vision-based multi-cursor controls. Through the integrated optical control system, users can manipulate VR elements with multi-touch gestures and spatial operating capability.

"We see the opportunity for VR as much broader than just gaming," said Milan Baic, president of Cordon who heads the Pinc product development. "Areas like everyday computing, productivity and commerce are very interesting for us."
