With apps like Google Cardboard (free), virtual reality is becoming increasingly available to the average person with a smartphone. I just ordered my first virtual reality headset last night. It was a very affordable $20 with shipping, because it’s made of cardboard. How cool is that. There’s even instructions on how to make your own, if you want to go the extra mile. Lots of VR apps work with Google Cardboard, just search VR in the App Store to see what’s available so far. There is starting to be quite a diversity of options on the marketplace so here’s my top five VR headsets, all certified compatible with Google Cardboard and varying in price range.
