Google Cardboard

Use your Android smartphone to enter an interactive 3-D world after building a cheap cardboard headset

Google Cardboard headset.

Cardboard is Google's 3-D project named for the visor that houses the phone that can be constructed from simple materials. Google handed out pre-cut corrugated kits at its I/O Developers Conference, but you can make your own out of any cardboard box or other materials using a printable template available online. The headset also needs a pair of lenses to magnify focus on the smartphone and create the 3-D effect. Lastly, a magnet and washer, which interact with the magnetometer (compass) in the phone to create a button that lets you navigate the virtual world.

Some companies are already assembling and selling their own headsets if you don't want to make your own. Kits start around $20. Google says it won't sell headsets and is concentrating on the Cardboard app. The app currently lets users use their cardboard visors to look around Google Earth and view 360-degree photos. The app also lets users view 3-D YouTube videos. It will be interesting to see what new 3-D features developers come up with using the open platform encouraged by Google.
