Clever, user-friendly design
Cardboard assembles in three simple steps. It also features custom-designed, high-quality lenses for immersive visuals and a partially laminated body for durability.
1. Download the Google Cardboard app and scan the QR code on the viewer using your phone’s camera.
2. Open the top flap of the viewer and take out the side flaps. Pull the flaps up and press against the fasteners on the sides.
3. Put your phone inside the Cardboard viewer and look through the lenses to enter the world of VR.
