Insight.

VR devices are incredible expensive to purchase. However, there are alternatives made from common cardboard that enable users to have a rudimentary VR experience. But these devices lack any ability to provide input and control, whilst the mobile is encased in the device. This greatly limits their user experience.  

Idea.

Personalised for the Google Nexus, we will create a cardboard VR headset that uses conductive ink to provide the user with control over their VR experience when in use. Through twinning the device with a Nexus VR hub application, a user will be able to control the experience, pushing paper buttons that are linked through conductive ink, bluetooth and rudimentary circuitry. This device will break down the barrier of entry to VR usage, providing a mass-available, inexpensive device to popularise mobile VR.
