Vortex VR Mobile Phone Case and Head Mounted Display
The VRTX I is a revolutionary virtual reality smartphone device tailor made for the LG G3 Quad HD to provide a high definition VR experience without the need for wires.
Designed in collaboration with GameFace Labs, the device was printed using Selecting Laser Sintering technology making it lightweight, full functional and durable. The entire process from design to manufacturing took less than a month to complete reducing lead times and tooling costs significantly.
“This is an exciting project for 3D Systems, one that combines the power, flexibility and rapid time-to-value enabled by 3D printing with the incredible advancements in virtual reality and wearables,” said Cathy Lewis, Chief Marketing Officer, 3D Systems. “This will change how we design, manufacture and interact with these exponential technologies forever.”
The product marks the beginning of Vortex VR’s plans to launch more products and services across the entire VR ecosystem over the next few months. With accurately configured optics, integrated controls and ergonomic designs already in place, the company is developing studio quality games and content for the android marketplace.
David Haines, Chairman and Interim CEO, Vortex, VR, Inc added: “With our technology partners, GameFace Labs and 3D Systems, we have been able to rapidly bring to market a mobile case and device with technology that has been developed to best leverage the Android OS, along with the powerhouse of hardware within the G3. This is the mobile VR experience everyone has been waiting for.”
