For a long time, the human race has dreamt about virtual reality. When you picture a VR headset, you probably think of something really high-tech and far too expensive to be practical.
Apparently, the guys at Google thought the same thing. While Facebook has bought into virtual reality technology for a whopping $2 billion, Google has settled for something a little more simple. Who would have imagined that we could create a VR headset out of something we already had: a simple piece of cardboard? Google did, that’s who.
Say hello to Google Cardboard. It may not sound like much – in fact, it may sound a lot like a joke – but this simple cardboard cutout can turn your Android phone into a neat virtual reality headset. Whether you’re looking for a cheap way to enhance your tech experience or you just want to see what this product is capable of, it’s worth checking out.
