    Have any of you tried this? The NYT sent me a free cardboard viewer to use with their VR app and I've been trying it with other apps. The Scify Channel has a VR app for this new show called The Expanse and it is beautiful.

    I'm old enough to remember the Viewmaster and this is a great evolution of the idea.

    Now I want more apps that work with this.

    i keep looking all around, up and down. I have to get a few of these cardboard things to give to the kids at Xmas. I grew up with Viewmasters and this way i finally have something i can share with them.

    some of them seem to be smoother recorded than others. i have only used this sitting down, but i can see how i might strain my neck looking in all directions.

    Mattel makes a plastic one that looks like a viewmaster for 30 bucks.
