These includes Samsung’s Gear VR, Google Cardboard and its derivatives (like LG’s VR for G3), and other do-it-yourself VR kits. Sometimes also known as mobile VR, they make use of your phone as both the display and the heart of your 3D experience. Generally, there’s the goggles and an empty chamber in front of the lenses, where your phone sits. With the appropriate apps or YouTube videos, you can place your phone in the empty chamber where the phone itself will handle all the computational tasks required, as well as having its screen play the role of display for your VR experience.
While Samsung’s offering is only compatible with its own Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, GoogleGoogle’ss Cardboard supports most Android smartphones, save the LG G3 due to design incompatibilities. Fortunately, LG has come up with a device called the VR for G3, which lets you view VR on the G3.
