Google Cardboard is exciting because it makes virtual reality accessible to anyone with a smartphone and a few extra bucks. Sure, the Oculus is cool, but $200 for a headset is still steep for the average person. Google Cardboard is…well, cardboard. Viewers cost around $20. It’s virtual reality for the masses. You assemble it in a few minutes, pop your phone in, and seconds later you’re standing in your apartment saying “OH MY GOD…OH MY GOD…OH MY GOD” because the future is here.
At least that’s how I felt about it. That, and pretty nauseated. Those VR physics aren’t quite right yet. But overall, it was incredible.
