Introduction: Rebuild Google Cardboard

Picture of Rebuild Google Cardboard

im rebuilding my c-board to fit a larger phone

since my phone is 5.5" it did not fit inside

you find many good/ugly hints how to do this. but they do not work

so i made a complete overhaul of the look

its semi-complete (there are things i still can do to inpove it but for the tuturial i let it stay like it is)

Step 1:

cut the remaining cardboard that came with the case like showed. (i used a pencil)

Step 2: Adding Durability to the Original Case

you can add some tape and dual sided tape to inprove stability and prevent sweat damage

Step 3: Inproving the Sides

use the made new bottem and some cardboard

in the size of the sides of the original case

then use tape to fix it togher

use a pencil to mark the location of the bulking out part of the side.

scratch over it with a pencil to make it deeper

Step 4: Finished

this is the finished product.
