I bought google cardboard and it arrived today, and it's so fun ohmy.gif Also weird, as I just have to look at something for a few seconds then it selects whatever I was looking at!!!! there were also dinosaurs in my living room

Have any of you tried Virtual Reality headsets before? What apps are good for using VR with? biggrin.gif


...OR do you think the VR is ridiculous and just another replacement for actually going outside?

Where can you get this in the UK? All I can find is American ones with $7 shipping on top of the $20+ price tag.

It seems simple enough to make your own with only requiring for a few items so I might make it myself tbh biggrin.gif

I also need to try that hologram one which I totally forgot about ohmy.gif

I just ordered a pair on eBay for £2.99, as I cba to collect magnets and lenses and DIY ha funky.gif

There's an app that can make any video on the internet (or your device) in 360 degrees and the results are rather impressive even without the cardboard! You can search to watch a movie and make it 3d but obv it's not going to be as good as it wasn't specially made for VR. It's free too https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/homido-360-...d909196467?mt=8

It's just a shame that the Google Cardboard official iOS app doesn't have some of the features the Android version has, specifically the Youtube browser which gives you floating thumbnail results nocheer.gif

So after that and the Color Switch app the scores are 2:0 to Android :'(

My google cardboard arrived last week but I couldn't assemble it without help from one of the guys at work. I am looking forward to trying it later.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who found it difficult to assemble! laugh.gif James was watching me construct it, he can vouch how annoyed I was getting mellow.gif It's pretty much held together with surgical tape laugh.gif

That would vary on the app. With some you just need to rest the "cursor" on the buttons for a couple of seconds and others you need to use the magnet.

Can't seem to get Google street view app on my touch sad.gif that would've been awesome.

I wonder how easy it is to make your own 3d environments via a free app thinking.gif
