    I personally think they will phase cardboard out and focus just on Daydream. But, I have the r2D2 cardboard and it is actually pretty cool. But can't wait to get the Daydream

    My kids enjoy cardboard and that's the main reason I bought it for, just for fun... heavy usage or if you're down and into VR... it would be a cheap experience coming from a cheap solution...

    Very interesting points here, I don't know if Ankydu felt his answer was already answered.

    But to summarize:
    - Good to start without expending a lot of money.
    - There is the option to print it yourself.
    - You should be aware of the fact that wearing and needing the eyeglasses may gives you a bad experience.
    - if you enjoyed it you can always opt to a better option with straps, more comfortable, durable and also with space for eyeglasses.
    - The experience won't ever be as good as Gear VR or real VR with a ViVE, Rift or PSVR, but it's a start.

    Frankly, it does the job at a way lower price. If you're a handy dandy, you can do a DYI and that'll cost you around 5-6 bucks, mainly you would pay for the lenses.

    Most any iPhone 5 or higher or android phone is compatible. This page has direct links to some of the ios (and android) apps. You may need to search the iTunes store for additional VR enabled apps.

    Google Cardboard is very much worth a look. We sell them here in Australia and we are finding that people are looking to them to whet their appetite for VR. Once you have seen what it can do on the phone as has been mentioned you can upgrade to a better set such as the Daydream or (is it still relevant) the Gear. Or you can go the whole hog and skip up to the Vive or others of that ilk!

    Google Cardboard does not have to be a poor headset. Our headsets have extended Head-straps, nose padding and lens protectors so when you slide it open the sleeve does not scratch the lens. These little things can make it an option that does last quite a while.

    If you are in Australia check out our headsets here https://www.austechvr.com.au/product...headset-strap/

    I would say its the cheapest one you can try. I have been using one for over 6 months now with a Nexus 6. Although my phone is a bit bigger for Google Cardboard, but for Galaxy S4, it would be a good fit
    That's what I am looking for well thank you so much for sharing this message.
