Google Cardboard VR – nerdgasm!
What is it they say? Once a nerd, always a nerd? I don’t know about you, but for me that definitely rings true. Working in IT, you tend to be surrounded by great people with vast knowledge in both the technical sphere as well as matters of the real world. There’s nothing quite like having a nerdy discussion, being among like minded, not to mention the fact that they get jokes most others just won’t understand. One of those that often springs to mind for me there is the quote “there are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don’t”.
Having a boss that’s nerdy sure helps as well, and just recently all the guys in the technical department got a small present from him. The gift was the Google Cardboard VR self assembly glasses, a technology I had read quite a bit about but never bothered to look into, let alone order just to play around with. Today, I brought this present back home and assembled it. My expectations weren’t high, I’ll give you that, but once I had them on I was laughing and having *SUCH* a good time! I actually think I caught myself giggling at one point. It doesn’t take much to please this guy, but this blew me out of the water.
One of the most fun things I’ve played around with so far, is the game Caaaaardboard!, which is a game that has you leaping off a building stacking up points as you fall down. The aim of the game is to stack up as many points as possible, without ending up dead on the way down. I guess this is the closest I’ll ever get to being Superman seeing I wasn’t born on the planet Krypton. Good stuff! 🙂
Technology is fun, and this inexpensive piece of kit proves that without the shadow of a doubt. Do yourself a favour and order this STRAIGHT away – you’ll have some good clean fun!
