From Google I/O listed the Google cardboard , I always want to get one , because of its a low price device feel virtual reality. Unfortunately, failing to buy a google cardboard drove me crazy . So I decided DIY a google cardboard by myself. It just need some tool :

1 . Google Cardboard PDF File ,A4 printed it, You can download from https://developers.google.com/cardboard/]

2 . A Cardbaord , maybe two.

3 . Art Knife

4 . Scissors

5 . Double-sided adhesive

Any way, build this headset cased about 1 hours . I found it really fun , I love the cardboard idea ! I hope more guys could enjoy the Virtual Reality Game , movie and street view etc. So we publish an unoffice google cardboard on ElecFreaks. Just $9.98 get one , http://www.elecfreaks.com/store/unofficial-version...

Step 1: Step 1: Stick A4 Paper on Cardboard.

At first, you need cut out the printed google cardboard A4 paper.

Then, stick them to the cardboard with double-sided adhesive

This maybe cased you about 10 minutes .

Step 2: Step2: Cut Out the Cardboard

This step cased mostly time of the project. Almost used me 30 minutes , we need follow the printed paper cut the cardboard. Since I used a hard cardbaord, when I cut it, those hole were too hard cut clear.

Finally, I thought I cut very clear and beautiful . :D

Step 3: Step3: Build Own Headset

Actually, I wasted two cardboard . Finial got a perfect one . The entire production process is quite interesting .

I believe if build it with your kids, it will be more interesting.

Enjoy Virtual Reality, Just do it !!

<p>Do you really need the lenses??</p>
hi good
will plastic lenses work good?
<p>thank you so much</p>
Where did you get the lenses from?
<p>A cheap way is to get a bottle, like a plastic one, and cut it in half. Then use the cap to trace 4 circles on the top part of the bottle and cut them out. Then use the hot glue gun to seal two circles together, but leave a small hole. Then put water in the hole, and then seal the hole with a glue gun :)</p>

<p>I made my DIY Virtual Reality headset for Ipad mini: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-7CeCbD6Yk</p>
<p>These days it is very easy to build a low cost VR headset. In the early 90s it would have cost you a fortune to build such a headset. I built my own PC Virtual Reality headset using a 8&quot; 1024x768 lcd screen, a sheet of 3x magnification fresnel lense and a wirless air mouse which acts as a head tracker. It works great for any PC First Person Shooter or open world RPG games like Skyrim, Oblivion, etc.</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/V0QboDZqguU" width="500"></iframe></p><p>Ashley Irons</p>
