What is Google Cardboard?
The Google Cardboard is the cheapest VR headset solution available right now. It is basically a shell with 2 lenses. You fit your smartphone in and use one of the many available apps.
The two lenses each show a slightly different stereoscopic image so that you get a real immersive 3D view. The gyros in the phone are used so that when you move your head, you look around within the game or video you are playing.
What Can I Do With It?
At the moment there are VR games and 3D immersive videos available for VR headsets through the app store.
Here are our favourite in the shop right now:
A German made version of duck hunt. Look around by moving your head and shoot the ducks with the trigger on the headset
Dive City Coaster
Dive make a few VR experiences. This on is a roller coaster ride. Try not to get dizzy as you look around.
