Introduction: Make Your Own Virtual Reality Glasses

Materials:

- Cardboard shoe box

- Scissors / X-Acto knife

- 2 45mm biconvex lenses

- 4 strips of Velcro

- Gluestick

Step 1: First, Print Out the Template From the PDF File.

Step 2: Cut Out the Templates on Cardboard With the Scissors (X-Acto Knife for Tight Cuts)

Step 3: Connect the Cut Outs Together

How to put it together:

-Lay out the cut-outs as shown in the picture

-Line up the slits and edges and connect the lens holding cut-out

-When piecing it together the Lens holding cut out should connect in a roll-like fashion

-When connecting the end piece any connective material can be used to hold it together (Magnet, Velcro, mounting tabs or glue)

When connecting the Phone holder cut-out do not use glue as it will lock the phone into the goggles.

Step 4: Download the Cardboard App at Google Play

With the cardboard app you can download many apps designed for 3D or test the goggles out on provided demos.

Apps we suggest from google play store:

-Volvo Reality

-Roller Coaster VR

-Mercedes VR

It would be better if your lenses were made out of plastic.

first, trace four circles onto a plastic bottle. Then, cut them out. After, hot glue two of the circles together leaving a tiney hole to put water in. Next, get one of those medicine sucker upper things and fill it up with water. Now put that water into the lenses you made through the hole. Lastly, just seal up the hole with hot glue.

just a solution for people with big phones, you can make the vr headset using your phone box(the box the phone was in when you bought it) it looks neater. but you need to copy and enlarge the details out there even so.
