With Google Glass coming out this summer, many of us are going to be paying a lot for a pair of new glasses.
But with the Google Cardboard and the Google Daydream VR headsets coming out later this year, it might not be as expensive to take the trip with these new headsets.
That’s because they are only going to work with the first generation of the Cardboard headset, which comes with two- and three-year subscription plans.
It will cost $199 and $299, respectively, but the third-generation version of the headset will be much cheaper at $499.
It’s not clear how much you’ll be able to save with the second-generation headset, however, since you’ll only be able use the Cardbot software to stream VR content.
If you already have a Google Cardbooster subscription, you can just keep your subscription for $99.
And while it may not be much, there’s still a chance that you might be able see some good VR content in VR with the Cardboards and Daydream headsets.
If Google were to release a version of its Cardboard that can work with other VR headsets like the Oculus Rift, then it could theoretically stream content to those headsets as well.
The same could apply for the Cardday headsets.
You’ll still be able view the same content on your headset, but Google’s developers would have to create a new SDK for them to work.
If they can’t do this, it’s possible that you won’t be able be able play any VR content from your Cardboard device on other headsets.
We’ll keep you updated on this as we learn more.
