LG Offering Free Google Cardboard to G3 Buyers
LG today announced the VR for G3, a custom version of Google's virtual reality cardboard headset made for the G3 smartphone. LG is offering the VR for G3 for free to people who buy the G3 smartphone. According to LG, the G3 is suited well to Google Cardboard thanks to the positioning of the buttons on the back surface rather than the side. Google Cardboard, as the name implies, is a foldable piece of cardboard that creates a virtual reality headset. The headset relies on a smartphone, which is placed inside the cardboard. The headset has special lenses that interact with VR apps and games on the screen. In addition to the free headset, LG is offering a free VR game download. The VR for G3 will be made available in select markets later this month.
