Virtual Reality on your Smartphone

Most gamers know about Occulus and new virtual reality technologies coming out, but for a much higher price tag than what Google has improvised, which is made out of mere cardboard!

Revealed at the Google IO conference, Cardboard is a scored, flat-pack box that you fold into set of cardboard goggles that hold your phone; an accompanying software package uses your phone’s screen and accelerometer to create stereo-optical VR images in the manner of the Oculus Rift.

It’s a delightfully simple and elegant concept, and Google has published plans for making your own. You need cardboard, a set of cheap lenses, a magnet, velcro and a rubber band.

For an idea of what virtual reality looks like through one of these gadgets, watch the video:

You can now download the cardboard files and the app!
