Techstasy: Crappy-looking homemade virtual reality goggles still awesome, offer immersive Google Earth views

(via Engadget)

The best thing about these is the words "VIRTUAL REALITY" sarcastically written in black marker on the side of the setup's cardboard shadowbox

The worst thing is the fact that if you even momentarily put these on, you will never, ever get laid again (and probably never did before). 

But it's still awesome that a consumer-grade smartphone, a set of repurposed machine-shop goggles and some cardboard can create an effect that rivals the hideously expensive setups VR poster-boy Jaron Lanier used to tout, back when VR was the guaranteed Next Big Thing
