I was given one of these cardbaord virtual reality headsets at Apps World a couple of weeks ago, and it’s pretty good. Not quite as immersive as the 1st Oculus Rift, mainly due to a lack of strap, and light creaping around the cardboard, but quite amazing for free! (you do need a phone though). I had a quick play with the Oculus Samsung Gear VR at the show as well, and like this cardboard headset it uses a mobile phone as a screen. I’m not really sure what more the Samsung Gear offers compared with the cardboard version…. except for a strap. It will be intersting to see what happens once these headsets hit the shops. I wonder if I start developing for VR?
