Currently not many Virtual or Augmented Reality solutions exist for Apple's iPhones. Occipital, who developed a depth sensor called Structure Sensor for iPads three years ago jumped at the chance to be among the first and announced Bridge, a Mixed Reality Headset specifically for iPhones, that goes beyond being a simple VR solution although it can also work in a dedicated Virtual Reality mode. Working with iPhones 6 or higher, the company hav started selling the Explorer Edition to developers for $499 through their homepage . The final version for consumers will be $100 cheaper and is scheduled for march of next year. 

 

The Bridge headset integrates the aformentioned Structure Sensor, a wide angle lens and the efficient Bridge engine, that can process realtime depth information without requiring the full power of a PC in the background. The video below shows some scenarios, where the Bridge can help creators but of course it can also be used as a solution for Augmented Reality gaming on the iPhone. Currently only a demo application exists, that allows the user to direct a virtual robot around his environment using the headset and a bluetooth controller. Occipital is hoping, that developers will create additional Augmented Reality solutions for the Bridge before it ships to consumers in march.
