The market is about to be awash with new, futuristic Virtual Reality Headsets. This is the start of a new era... just wait.

The View-Master Virtual Reality Starter Pack works with Google Cardboard. All you need to do is download one of the free View-Master apps to your compatible smartphone. You then put your smartphone into the viewer and place the Preview Reel in front of your eyes.
