SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Customers will start taking delivery of the Pico Goblin VR headset in North America this week. The Goblin is Pico's all-in-one (AIO) VR headset which requires no mobile phone, PC or console to operate.
"We are delighted to bring user-friendly and easy access VR to people around the world," said Paul Viglienzone, VP of Business Development, Pico Interactive Inc. "We've heard from users that they find VR hardware difficult to set up and complicated to manage. Our Goblin all-in-one headset solves these problems and offers ultra-portable, easy and lightweight VR without wires or clunky cables."
Designed with the user in mind, the Pico Goblin is an instant gateway into the virtual reality world. Compared to other VR head-mounted-displays (HMD) and phone-slotted solutions, the Pico Goblin is simple and easy to use. Featuring the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 processor, a 2.5K display and a pocket-friendly wireless Bluetooth controller, the Goblin is designed for people who value their time and expect VR solutions that fit their busy and mobile lifestyles.
The Pico Goblin will feature over 50 Games and Apps available for download at or shortly after launch — with five brand new games releasing first or exclusively on the Pico platform.
Featured Games include:
- "Attack of the Bugs" by Binary Bubbles / Empty Clip Studios (New - First Release)
- "Abyssus" by PlaySys (New - First Release)
- "Elven Snowdown" by PIL (New - First Release)
- "Wands" by Cortopia

Video will also be available through Apps like VeeR VR and the Pico Fly Screen. VeeR VR showcases some of the best video contents handpicked from a dynamic community of creators worldwide. The Pico Fly Screen App allows for users to stream video from their PC direct to the Goblin headset via Wi-Fi.
The Pico Goblin will be showcased at Gamescom in Germany from Aug. 22-26. Attendees can try out and purchase the headset directly at Pico's booth, #E-22 in hall 10.1. The Pico Goblin is available now for purchase in the U.S. ($269), the U.K. (£269) and Europe (€299) at www.pico-goblin.com.
