Get on your back. Let me put this on your face.

Where do I start with this one? The picture alone is enough to give you an idea of the madness. It’s a “Cardboard Home Cinema” and, because it’s not the actual size of a real cinema, you basically lie on the floor and stare at your phone. Yeah. …

Make your own Google Cardboard glasses. From food.

Yeah. It’s a weird idea, but someone in the US decided to make some virtual reality glasses with crackers. Not just any crackers, but Graham Crackers. They’re a bit hard to get hold of here in the UK, which is particularly annoying as my wife finds them to …

Win with Honor

Honor have a competition on right now. Perhaps it’s to find the letter “U” from their name. Who knows. What I can tell you is that they’re giving away some limited edition flip cases (they look a bit like this but more .. errr.. limited edition-ee) and some …

OnePlus Cardboard

OnePlus is teasing us with the OnePlus Two quite hard. The product launch, scheduled for July 27th 2015, will be held in “Virtual Reality” (or VR if you are an acronym lover). To allow OnePlus One users to watch the event, OnePlus is giving away Google Cardboard kits …

LG VR for G3 brings 3D 2U for free

A short while ago I put together my ultra-cheap Google Cardboard headset. It’s something you construct yourself, pop on your head and then, using the Google app, you can step into a 3D world. Now, if you’ve got an LG G3 handset, you’ll be getting one free. It’s …

Google Maps now introduces 3D Cardboard-friendly Street View

Remember my Cardboard Review? This low-cost VR headset is easy to construct and a proper fun gadget. Just drop your phone in the front, run the Google Cardboard app and off your go. You’re in a world of virtual reality and it’s not massively expensive, plus if you …

Google Cardboard review

After almost a month, my Google Cardboard has turned up. This self-assembled version was ordered some time ago from dx.com and cost just over £2 in the end. Oh yes. I’m reviewing some cardboard construction that costs less than a pint of beer. I think I’ve made it …

Google Cardboard. Get yourself one!

Fancy getting yourself some of those low-tech but still pretty cool virtual reality specs from Google? How does £2.34 sound? Google Cardboard is basically a headset containing your phone that you strap onto your bonce. Some assembly is required here, but once you’re done you can strut around …

Google Cardboard – The cheap virtual reality headset

Remember our review of the Luckies Smartphone Projector ? It’s a rather clever cardboard construction which will send the image from your smartphone screen over to a wall or another flat surface. On the whole it worked jolly well and you can see our review here. However, the …
