What is Cardboard?

The Google Cardboard app brings virtual reality to your phone by helping you set up a cardboard viewer, and providing a few starting experiences.

 

The Google Cardboard app is available for both iOS and Android device, and can be downloaded for free from the Google Play store or the iTunes app store.

 

To use Google Cardboard, you will need a Cardboard Viewer.

 

Google Cardboard is an app designed to help users set up their Viewers, but it also includes a few demos and VR experiences like exploring different environments, viewing objects in museum exhibits, walking through iconic cities, and an arctic journey.

 

Reviewers have mixed feelings about Google Cardboard, aggregated for a 3.4 out of 5 in the iTunes review section, but, as VR is a relatively new concept, the app and its functionality should continue to improve, and Google will most likely be leading the way.


The app is rated for users 4+ because it is free of violence and other adult content, but it is recommended that kids under 13 do not use most VR headsets.  

Is Cardboard safe for my kids?

Google Cardboard is safe for kids who are old enough to use a VR headset, which, as previously stated, is around age 13.

The visual experiences are tame and enjoyable, and they do not include violence, sexual content, or otherwise unsavory themes.

Google Cardboard allows its users a unique experience, where they can visit far off cities and take a relaxing stroll, or view priceless museum exhibits, or even plant a flower garden in the arctic.

These experiences can be relaxing while also expanding the horizons of the user’s mind by transporting them to new places, where they have to think differently about the world.

Parents should avoid using VR with young children, as it may be damaging to their eyes.
