Google Cardboard 1.0 is a fun, DIY virtual reality headset kit for smartphones that assembles into 3D Glasses for an incredibly awesome VR experience.

It transforms your smartphone into a basic virtual reality headset with selected Apps. It's a great way to extend functionality and experiment with VR.

Assemble the kit in less than 3 minutes, drop your device into the little cardboard viewfinder you wind up with, hold it up to your face, and you're immersed in a virtual reality world comparable in resolution to the first version of the Oculus Rift, if not better.

Turn your head to scroll through a row of apps, and on the left side there's a metal washer that's held on by a magnet. Flick it down to click on something. It's incredibly intuitive, and equally impactful.



  • A fun do-it-yourself project - for kids and adults.
  • A simple way to make your very own virtual reality glasses like the Oculus Rift.
  • Takes no more than 3 minutes to assemble.
  • Compatible with most 4-5 inch smartphones (contact us if unsure about compatibility).
  • Makes for a great nifty geek gift.
  • Manufactured by Gadgets 4 Geeks.


Here are some great examples of Apps you can use:
  • Earth: Fly where your fancy takes you on Google Earth.
  • Tour Guide: Visit Versailles with a local guide.
  • YouTube: Watch popular YouTube videos on a massive screen.
  • Exhibit: Examine cultural artefacts from every angle.
  • Photo Sphere: Look around the photo spheres you've captured.
  • Street Vue: Drive through Paris on a summer day.
