If you are just taking your first steps into the world of virtual reality, buying a Cardboard VR viewer is a cheap way to do to dip your toe in the water, so to speak. The 2nd gen Cardboard VR can be ordered directly from the Google Store for the following prices:
- UK: £15, or £25 for a two-pack
- Germany/France: €20, or €30 for a two-pack
- Canada: $20, or $35 for a two-pack
For the moment at least, it seems that Google is only offering the stock version of the Cardboard VR viewer, as opposed to the special edition units that are available from the US Google Store.
If you were waiting for Google’s Cardboard VR viewer to become available in your country, which of the thousands of apps, games, and videos have you been looking forward to using the most?
