Google Cardboard is a Virtual Reality (VR) headset made of cardboard and other low-cost materials, such as plastic lenses and a magnetic switch. It was developed by Google in 2014 as a way to provide an affordable and accessible VR experience to the masses.
To use Google Cardboard, a smartphone is inserted into the front of the headset and held in place by straps. The phone’s screen acts as the display for the VR experience, and the lenses inside the headset provide a stereoscopic view that creates a 3D effect. The magnetic switch on the side of the headset can be used to interact with the virtual environment.
Google Cardboard works with a variety of VR apps, games, and videos that are available for download from the Google Play Store and other sources. It has become a popular tool for educational and entertainment purposes, allowing users to explore virtual worlds and environments from the comfort of their own home.
