Google Cardboard brings the affordable VR revolution to the iPhone


iPhone owners can at long last try out Google Cardboard.

Released today, Google Cardboard for iOS is compatible with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and comes preloaded with four virtual reality playgrounds.

Before joining in the fun, iPhone owners will need to get themselves a cardboard viewer. On the Cardboard website, there are instructions on how to create your own, and a shop to purchase a pre-made one.

Google Cardboard was created by two of the company’s engineers during their 20 per cent time, and shown off for the first time at last year’s I/O. In April, Google announced its Works for Cardboard initiative and an update to the platforms SDK. According to the company, an iOS compatible SDK is forthcoming.
