Google Cardboard is a Low Cost VR Headset

Google Cardboard is a virtual reality platform developed by Google for use with a head mount for a any smart phone.

The Cardboard software development kit (SDK) is available for BOTH Android and iOS operating systems. The SDK's VR View allows developers to embed VR content on the web as well as in their mobile apps.

Named for its fold-out cardboard viewer, the platform is intended as a low-cost system to encourage interest and development in VR applications - and it has proved immensely popular.

Users can either build their own viewer from simple, low-cost components using specifications published by Google, or purchase a pre-manufactured one.

The parts that make up a Cardboard viewer are a piece of cardboard cut into a precise shape, 45mm focal length lenses, magnets or capacitive tape, a hook and loop fastener such as velcro, a rubber band, and an optional near field communication (NFC) tag. Google provides extra recommendations for large scale manufacturing, and pre-assembled kits based on these plans

To use the platform, users run Cardboard-compatible applications on their phone, place the phone into the back of the viewer, and view content through the lenses.

Google announced an enhanced VR platform called Daydream in 2016, and through March 2017 over 10 million Cardboard viewers had shipped and over 160 million Cardboard app downloads had been made.

Why Should I Hire Google Cardboard?

While the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Sony Playstation VR represent VR at the high end, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a decent taste of VR.

Google Cardboard is making VR accessible to wider culture - while not compromising an incredible experience for a cheap price tag.

Here, we have compiled a handy list of the top reasons you should hire Google Cardboard for your next event:

But What Should I Consider?

Google Cardboard is a relatively low-tech option. Higher-end devices can track your head, and some can even track your arms through motion controllers. They also have better graphics and special improvements that make them feel real to your mind.

As well as that, while the Cardboard app can help you find some of the content, a lot of it is spread out meaning you need to search hard for a variety of apps.

Most Cardboard viewers are cheaply built and uncomfortable for longer play sessions. It’s also possible to experience nausea if you play Cardboard too long, so it’s really meant for shorter play sessions.
