Virtual Reality (VR) is a medium that has to be experienced to understand it. You can try and explain it to your friends, and they will look at you like you are crazy. You will hear things like, “oh, sounds cool.” or “I’ll check it someday.” Or maybe somebody tried explaining it to you and you were the one saying these things. Well, today is the day, give VR a spin. Don’t have a headset? Think they are too expensive? Not a problem, start with Google cardboard.
Buy Google Cardboard on Amazon:
