Google Cardboard

Google Cardboard

Google Cardboard is a low cost virtual reality headset made out of cardboard, obviously, two lenses, a small magnet and some velcro. In­struc­tions on how to make one yourself are available online.

I was quite skeptical when it came out last year. I'm not a big fan of Virtual Reality and especially when I thought of using a "low-res" screen such as a Nexus 5, combined with the onboard sensors that are not calibrated for this purpose, I didn't think it would be any good.

And back then... the official app had some bugs. While I could view panoramas made with my phone, I couldn't get the Youtube continue.
