“What’s realer than real?”
2016 was meant to be the year of Virtual Reality (VR). Nearly every major electronics company has poured resources into developing and owning this space and this year we’re starting to see some of the fruits of their labour.
But what if Virtual Reality isn’t enough? What if we want something more immersive? What if we need something more real?
Google‘s got you covered. The search engine giant says that it’s done with “putting something between you and the world”, which is why they decided to put something transparent between you and the world.
Meet the Google Cardboard Plastic — the first Actual Reality headset.
The Google Cardboard Plastic gives its users 100% full immersion in actual reality so you won’t get distracted by anything else. It’s also constructed with a lightweight plastic so that it fits unobtrusively into your lifestyle. With VR displays being notorious for their low-resolution display, the Cardboard Plastic gives users 20/20 resolution — it’s almost like you’re looking at real life.
Worried about compatibility? Fret not, the Cardboard Plastic works with all apps and across all platforms, even your Nokia 3310. It’s also got 360-degree audio for the ultimate cinematic experience.
With the Cardboard Plastic, Google has also shored up one of its biggest weaknesses with the original Cardboard — water resistance. The Cardboard Plastic is fully waterproof because…well, it’s made of plastic, not cardboard.
We think Google has really hit the nail on the head with this one. It’s truly revolutionary and I want one.
Disclaimer: For those of you who haven’t picked up on it yet, yes this is probably (almost definitely) an April Fool’s prank. Still, this has to be the most magnificent one I’ve seen today.
