What to make of Google I/O Cardboard?

Used to more prominent gifts from the hosts of the event, some of the participants of the Google I/O conference were downright surprised when handed out rectangle cardboard pieces for gifts. Not only that, but one has to go through a tedious and quite an unintuitive procedure of folding the thing. The end result? Well, according to Greg from TechCrunch its darn freaking amazing. Plastic lens, magnet button and a handful of 'experiences' to choose from. Is there a better way to immerse yourself into the world of virtual reality (VR) in the vein of Oculus Rift, than with this truly 'Mockulus Thrift' reinterpretation.

If you haven't been to Google I/O, have no friends at Google, but are still curious as to what the fuss of VR devices is all about, head over here to order your copy from DODOcase. You will also need an app, which will happily run on Android 4.1 devices.
