The Google Cardboard will probably be most peoples first taste of a VR headset. At less than a tenner, you can experience VR with the use of your smartphone and from first hand experience I can tell you it is pretty immersive for what it is.

It came out last year as an experiment by Google and this year version 2 is out to allow bigger sized smartphones. Take it for what it is (A bit of cardboard plus lenses and a magnet) and you will enjoy the simplicity of this product.

Quote:Google has an ambitious plan for the future: help nearly anyone with a smartphone to experience virtual reality.

The technology industry is preparing for an onslaught of new devices that mount on your head, immersing you in computer-generated worlds ranging from space battles to Spanish villas.
The trend is called virtual reality, or VR, and the technology is moving from science fiction to store shelves within the next year. Once thought of as a gimmick from the early '90s, VR is now one of the hottest markets in the tech industry as low-cost components and powerful software have made replicating the real world easier and more lifelike.
