    That looks great/insane.

    When I saw the title of the post though I was expecting a piece of Cardboard with the word Google drawn on it. A bit like the post @DaveP made about Google Glass

    You'll also need a ruler, glue, and scissors, an X-acto knife, or access to a laser cutter.
    A laser cutter... With cardboard...?

    That's not going to be a problem, is it? You know.. Because fire...?

    Looks like a great idea for the DT department: Take google's design and make it better. Had a quick look for the lenses on a uk website but can't really find any suitable. If anyone has found where to buy them please share!

    Nope, when "printing" with the laser cutter from 2D Design, you do have the option to "print" to cardboard...

    The presenter on the bbc news tech show (cant remember the show name) said it was almost as good as the full vr headsets like oculus.

    Presumably it was deleted. Looked like marketing spam

    I was looking for Google Cardboard VR and found this website Home page (Redacted)
    These people are selling Google Cardboard VR device online with free shipping worldwide. The product seems to be fairly priced. Also, they are selling the parts and card board separately.
    I ordered Pre-Cut Cardboard Only at $12.99 hopefully I will built it myself else I will require help here.
    Site redacted, obviously. Not going to do their advertising for them.

    Correct. This thread is being hit by spammers. Another one hit the great Spam-o-matic machine today. Two posts went yesterday

    Laser cutter is not included.......... the cardboard is laser pre cut for DIY.
    Many websites like http://www.googlecardboard.com/ are selling the pre-cut Cardboard online.

    I came across this DIY version, which I think looks way cooler than the cardboard version Google Polycarbonate - page 2 of the article is interesting
