Google has unveiled Cardboard, which uses a cardboard enclosure to turn a phone into a VR headset.

 

Hardware manufacturers are lining up to nab a piece of the virtual reality headset market. The Oculus Rift may be leading the pack, but Samsung has registered a trademark for its rumored headset, and Sony's Project Morpheus impressed The Escapist's Joshua Vanderwall at E3. Now, Google is joining the VR headset rush. Google announced project Cardboard at its annual I/O developer conference, describing it as "a no-frills enclosure that transforms a phone into a basic VR headset."

Well, if you wanted in on the VR scene, but worried Oculus Rift would charge too much, worry no more! Now you can DIY it for only a few bucks!!

Will have to try that out for giggles and curiosity, if anything just to dis-prove the wife's statement of "you can't possibly get any dorkier."  We'll see who gets the last laugh.
