I’ve been meaning to write a blog post about Virtual Reality (VR) for a while, and in particular what I call the ‘poor man’s VR’. My interest in it started when Google announced the Google Cardboard take on VR at Google I/O 2014. After seeing it I was really curious to see how good it actually was. (compared to things like the Oculus rift). Obviously it wouldn’t be comparable to custom PC driven VR but I just wondered what type of experience you’d get with a phone.
