Google Cardboard is an extremely budget way to experience VR - you just put your smartphone in a cardboard box with some lenses and press it to your face.It's a far cry from the sophisticated VR gear put out by the likes of Facebook's Oculus or the Vive, from HTC and Valve. But it's remarkably effective, and costs a fraction of the price.
In the UK, it will cost you £15 a headset, or £25 for two. Similarly, it's €20/€30 in France and Germany, and $20/$35 in Canada.Cardboard, which is compatible with both Android and iOS devices, is still in its infancy - although there are increasing numbers of apps and companies taking advantage of the novel medium. Notably, The New York Times is experimenting a fair amount with VR, even sending its subscribers Google Cardboard headsets in the US.
