Google cardboard - works with Android phones, £12.08 without nfc tags, although there are various options.

For those that dont know what this is there is a loads of videos just google it. Gives a VR experience using your android smartphone, there is also a google+ group with more info.

I tried getting the lenses but had problems so just got the kit instead.

Some details on how it works:

Where is this? Also, is it possible to mirror your PC screen on your phone? In essence allowing you to use the Google cardboard in place of the rift?

I do know the quality is nothing compared to the rift, but seeing as the wait time for DK2 is September, and no sign of CV1 I'm curious if this could be a disposable version of DK1 perhaps?

Reposting as it seems to have lost all the detail.

ok well some software called Kainy can get your game to display on your phone. I just tried Assetto corsa and although it displays, the lag sending the image over wifi is too slow. Not really suprised but was worth a look.

Hi there, I've posted a deal about the Google Cardboard here: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/google-cardboard-cheap-way-turn-your-android-phone-into-a-virtual-reality-headset-1963939#post-comment

If you guys have received yours it would be great to hear your reviews on it over on that thread :)

The Rift is basically a headset + a screen + lenses + sensors to sense tilt and direction, and then an external computer to provide the graphical power.

A modern smartphone has a screen and all the sensors, and a fair amount of graphical power all in one unit, so all you really need is the lenses and a headset.

I agree on first impression it sounds a bit silly, but if you think about it it's a perfectly viable solution.

I found the name Oculus Thrift funny.
