We built a knockoff of Oculus Rift for $25

Google I/O, the annual Google developers conference usually provides some pretty sweet swag for its attendees, such as the newest laptops and tablets. This year, they revealed their virtual reality platform collaboration with GoPro called “Jump”.

Google first dabbled in virtual reality at last year’s conference with a piece of cardboard. Presented at the end of the conference, “Google Cardboard” was a way for Google to prove how simple virtual reality can be.

We were intrigued, so we built one ourselves.
