Google’s DIY Cardboard Headset For Experiencing Virtual Reality On The Cheap

Virtual reality has always been closely associated with “the future”—to make virtual reality accessible to more people, Google has created “Cardboard”, an awesome cardboard-made VR headset that you can put together by yourself and use with your smartphone.

Accompanied with an open software toolkit, this headset would not only allow users to experience virtual reality via the available demos, but also create their own immersive digital experiences.

Everything you need to built your own Cardboard can be found on this page, online or at your local hardware store—the entire project would only cost you a tiny fraction of the futuristic Oculus Rift Gaming Headset.

Would you like to try making this cardboard VR headset?
