OnePlus cardboard VR headset is now in stock on Amazon.in. The company has launched this headset in a giveaway fashion with the company announcing that they are not taking any profit out of its sale. In fact, they say they are loosing some bucks on India.
One Plus one cardboard is made available in India for just Rs.99. Additional shipping charges may apply if you have no additional orders that exceeds Rs. 459 in total. The purchase is limited to 1 unit per person. Package being light the shipping charges should not exceed Rs.50.
The company is learned to have launched this accessory in order to facilitate the users to watch their upcoming OnePlus Two in Virtual Reality. This is a first time any company is streaming their live launch through a VR streaming. The launch is scheduled on July 27, 2015.
Though the OnePlus Card is made of cardboard, it is coated with materials to repel grease, oil and water so as to increase its durability. The headset needs some assembly before it can be turned into a VR headset. Almost all devices with screen sizes ranging in between 4.5 inch and 6 inches will fit in well.
Google already have some VR apps in playstore. So you really need not wait for the OnePlus live stream to experience it. The North Face “Climb” app is something you can test out with this headset.
