Microsoft’s VR Kit is the company’s take on Google Cardboard


Remember the Google Cardboard – the $20 (or more) virtual headset kit made with cardboard by Google that allowed users to enjoy a decent virtual reality experience just with their smartphone? Well, it looks like Microsoft also has its own virtual reality box, dubbed as the VR Kit. Users will be able to enjoy VR on the VR Kit just by using a Lumia device, which is just how most of the other virtual reality boxes work.

Interestingly enough, Microsoft is holding a hackathon in Russia to build apps for the VR Kit which will be happening in October 17th. It will be interesting to see if Microsoft will be selling the VR Kit to consumers – however, for now, that seems quite unlikely considering there isn’t a lot of VR Apps for Windows Phone. That being said, we won’t be surprised if the developers make some nice apps and games for the VR Kit in the hackathon next month.
