What you get

  • Headset
  • Pointcode
  • Controller
  • Lens Adapter
  • ZapBox App

Cardboard Headset

A headset inspired by Google Cardboard that holds your smartphone, with a head strap so your hands are free to interact with the content.

Pointcodes

Pointcodes are markers you attach to walls, floors or tables that enable the ZapBox app to work out your position and understand the surfaces in your room.

Cardboard Controllers

ZapBox includes two controllers which can be tracked when visible to the camera. This means they can be turned into fun ways to interact with content such as a golf club, pointer or paintbrush.

Lens Adapter

The fisheye lens adapter increases the field of view of your smartphone’s camera, dramatically improving the immersion and impact of ZapBox experiences and allowing a greater range of motion with the controllers.

ZapBox App

Your one-stop shop to experience ZapBox content. You’ll use the app to build a map of the codes you’ve placed around your room, and then to browse and experience content.
