After the Oculus Rift headset, Google glasses, the Sony Morpheus project, the Samsung Gear VR, the Google cardboard, it’s now time for Microsoft to build a VR headset, as they say, Microsoft HoloLens goes beyond augmented reality and virtual reality by enabling you to interact with three-dimensional holograms blended with your real world.
Created by David Coz, a young French engineer, now employed by Google, the Cardboard kit is a real video gaming revolution:
Inspired by the Oculus Rift, this headset is sold as a DIY (Do It Yourself).
With this cardboard kit you can turn your smartphone into a real 3D immersion tool (or virtual reality). You can assemble this headset yourself very easily.
The kit includes a cardboard box, 2 lenses, two magnets and a rubber band, it will cost between 15 and 25 euros and a few minutes of your time to build one.
Once you have installed your smartphone,you will be able to download several applications of your choice on your Android or iOS smartphone and immerse into it.
The quality is, of course, not as good as the Oculus Rift helmet, but if you have a smartphone it’s really a cheap option if you want to have fun.
