If you are one of the thousands of disappointed fans who missed out on Adele聽tickets when the site crashed then sold out immediately, here鈥檚 some good news 鈥 and no, we鈥檙e not talking about just watching her concert live stream on TV. We鈥檙e at CES 2016 where virtual reality is a HUGE deal this year with everything from the Oculus Rift that鈥檚 retailing for a whopping $599 to viewers like聽Google鈥檚 own Cardboard that鈥檚 taking the world by storm. So far, there hasn鈥檛 been anything mid-range, super accessible yet hardy VR viewers that can聽actually聽bring virtual reality to the masses鈥 until now.

Pocket VR 1

Speck, makers of awesome smartphone cases, introduced their聽Pocket VR ($70) yesterday and it鈥檚 going to change your life. We鈥檝e really never seen anything like it. The kit comes with a nifty VR viewer that easily unhinges flat when you need to carry it around (it could literally fit in your back pocket). The best part is it comes with their signature Candy Shell Grip case which sells for about $35 just on its own. Yes, so if you do the math, you鈥檙e get an incredibly hardy + portable virtual reality viewer that聽isn鈥檛聽made out of cardboard for just $35. What the what?


We got to have some hands-on time with the Pocket VR and it鈥檚 a pretty amazing product. You can download Speck鈥檚 own virtual reality app and have access to content like Paul McCartney in concert (maybe Adele someday?). Then you just pop your Samung Galaxy or iPhone into the viewer and you actually feel like you鈥檙e onstage. It鈥檚 wild. You can turn around 360 and the views will turn with you.

Basically, it鈥檚 better than having a front row seat.
