Easy and cheap ways to try virtual realityBe one step ahead of the crowd and try out VR right now without breaking the bank.
[MUSIC] Virtual reality doesn't need to be expensive. First, you'll need a headset like Google Cardboard. As the name suggests, it's made of cardboard and you put it together yourself. Prices are around the $20 mark and it comes in several different versions. For a more steady experience, try the Mattel Viewmaster at $25. Both these headsets work with Android or IOS phones. To get started, insert the phone into the headset and download a virtual reality app. You can find a wide selection on the Google Play or Apple App store. Sit back, hold the headset to your eyes, and immerse yourself in a 360 degree world. To make your own virtual reality photos, download the Google Cardboard Camera app for Android. Hold out your phone and move it around in a circle to take the photo. Then place the phone in a viewer to see the magic in action. In San Francisco, I'm Lexy Savvides, cnet.com for CBS News. [SOUND]
