At the end of last week, I picked up a class set of VR headsets that I need to assemble and find a storage box for over in the Geography room. They came from Hong Kong and cost just a couple of pounds each. I also need a bag of googly eyes to stick on the front of them...
I'm preparing a unit called Virtual Geographies, which looks at the use of this technology and hopefully gets the students involved in a range of activities.
Just signed up to be notified about the next stage in Google Cardboard development: Google Daydream, which is apparently coming in Autumn 2016, and features an improved headset with some sort of remote control switch, judging by the image below:
