Want to Build Your Own Google Cardboard this Summer?

What's Google Cardboard? Google Cardboard functions just like a stereoscope does, albeit with a phone as opposed to two static images operating as the object to be viewed. Essentially, taking two identical (neglecting distortion and slight angular differences) images and projecting them into the human eye will create the illusion of a 3-dimensional image, since our binocular vision gives us the...
