Get a ready-made Google Cardboard VR headset free, courtesy of Volvo


If you liked the idea of the poor man’s virtual reality headset, Google Cardboard, but decided your DIY skills weren’t up to the task of making your own and didn’t want to lay out $20 for a third-party kit, you’ll soon be able to get one for free, thanks to Volvo.

The car-maker is using a Volvo-branded version of Google Cardboard together with a companion app to help promote its new XC90 SUV.

Simply download the free Volvo Reality app, then wait until Tuesday when you’ll be able to request your free Google Cardboard through the app. Best fire it up early, though: Volvo says supplies are limited.

Once you have it, you can of course use it with any Google Cardboard-compatible app.
