CUSTOMER RATING

The Powis PopUp is an innovative take on the ultra-portable smartphone HMD case design. We’ve seen a few flat, portable designs, but they all invariably have an open design. In other words, outside light isn’t blocked. Powis VR have managed to combine both the flat-folding benefits of those minimalist HMD units, while still providing some level of light blocking.

PROS
  • Innovative Minimalist Form Factor
  • Blocks External Light Despite Size
CONS
  • Little Space between Screen and Lenses
  • No Headstrap

Powis is mostly known for their luxury remake of the the Google Cardboad concept, with their Powis VR Viewer providing fancy-pants materials and an abundance of branding options so that you can use the hype and buzz around VR to promote your own business interests.

 

Of course, even “mobile” headsets generally end up being left at home, since unlike a smartphone they too bulky to actually pocket, which is why there has been a trend for more minimalist headsets that encourage people to actually take them along.

Of course, they space between the screen and lenses is rather small, so it’s not clear how immersive this can actually be in practice, but apart from those model-specific built-in case VR HMDs there are few that are more portable than this.

As a marketing tool the PopUp is even more compelling, since it’s something that clients would appreciate, but not necessarily get for themselves. Corporate gifts go through fads. Recently it was the USB flash drive, then the power bank. Perhaps it’s now time for the complementary VR headset.
