Cardboard is a virtual reality (VR) platform developed by Google for use with a fold-out cardboard mount for a mobile phone. It is intended as a low-cost system to encourage interest and development in VR and VR applications.
Google Cardboard headsets are built out of simple, low-cost components. The headset specifications were originally designed by Google, but there is no official manufacturer or vendor for the device. Instead, Google made the list of parts, schematics, and assembly instructions freely available on their website, allowing people to assemble Cardboard themselves from readily available parts.
Cardboard comes in a variety of formats and can be custom printed for your brand.
We work with the following cardboard partners.
- DODOcase – http://www.dodocase.com/
- Knox Labs – http://www.knoxlabs.com
