How to make a VR headset with a pizza box, smartphone and $21 worth of tech
Google is bringing virtual reality to Android phones with cardboard literally. The Cardboard project is Google’s attempt to bring inexpensive VR to its operating system using items you can find around home or buy at a hardware store or order online. Those include actual pieces of cardboard (an extra large pizza box will do), lenses, magnets, velcro, a rubber band and, if you like, an near-field communications (NFC) tag, which will launch Cardboard automatically.
This has been widely reported elsewhere so I debated whether to even mention it, but it is VR related so there you go. I find the whole concept ridiculous. Funny, but ridiculous.
