But look, you knew that when you bought them. Google Cardboard is a cheap, silly way to demo VR, and it does help illustrate the potential of the medium. It also shows how far we still have to go before decent-quality VR is actually affordable or practical for the average consumer.
You'll have fun with these for a day. If you feel like that's worth 25 bucks, knock yourself out.
I own an oculus cv1 but before I bought that I had this.
On the oculus you can move around and the view is wider and more immersive. Which is fantastic if you are serious about vr and will be using it often.
If you want to see what this vr thing is about and don't want to spend a few hundred dollars then buy this. You'll find new experiences and answers to questions you may have been asking yourself about vr. YouTube is a good resource for vr content and works well with this headset.
Still on the fence after reading that? Don't be, get off that fence and buy this. The only thing you might regret is not buying a more expensive set.
- easy to set up
- easy way to test out VR
- "switch" for controlling some apps compatable with iPhone
-fits over glasses
- obviously not perfectly immersive
- nose piece can be a bit uncomfortable
- have to hold it up to your face
All in all, a good purchase for what it is.
When I first heard of this, it sounded like an April Fool's announcement, now I wonder how many other products could created in a similar manner.
