TOYGER Magic Clip from REMOTZ (stand not included)
REMOTZ (stand + clip set) is sold here:
Magic Clip from REMOTZ.
This is how the clip looks like (the design may differ slightly from the prototype but it works all the same);
Basically, this clip has a special type of lens inside which bends the light direction so when you attach it on your smartphone lens, it averts the direction the camera shooting.
You can set up the phone with its screen facing toward you, while the camera shooting below.
You just need to pinch the smartphone with this clip. Easy.
How can I make a video-call?
You'll need a video calling app to play TCG online. REMOTZ is a completely analog device, so it's compatible with any kind of app.
Discord, Skype, Zoom... you can continue using whatever app you're familiar with.
Compatible smartphones: any smartphone or tablet which has the camera lens positioned within 2.7cm from the edge.
* Almost all smartphones are compatible, excluding few models with camera lens positioned in the center area of the device.
- With few types of smartphones you might slightly see the edge of the clip itself.
- REMOTZ uses a special type of lens. That might cause so-called mirage display, it happens rarely, depending on how the light is reflecting. It can be slightly visible to almost non-visible, depending on the camera setting, clip attachment, angle, lighting or the color of cards or playmats. It shouldn't be a problem for gameplay, but please understand this as the limit of the current technology.

Q. Is REMOTZ an electronic device?
A. No, it isn't. It's a completely mechanical device which bends the directions of light inside.
Q. Is my phone compatible?
A. It's not an electronic device, so any model is compatible as long as it has the camera lens within 2.7cm from its edge. In case of doubt, please check your smartphone and make sure that the lens is within the range of 2.7cm.
Q. Do you think my screen is too small for online gameplay?
A. You can play TCG online with out problem with relatively small screens. Of course, if it's bigger, it's easier!
Q. My smartphone cover is very thick. Will this be a problem?
A. If the cover is too thick, the clip cannot get close enough to the lens. If that happens, we recommend to take off the cover before playing it.
