AT&T offers $10 VR headset, app
AT&T has partnered with Google Cardboard headset maker Knox Labs to offer a $10 white cardboard virtual reality headset, based on last year’s model.
These older-style headsets, normally $15 each, have the magnetic button on the side of the headset, not the touch-sensitive button on top like this year’s models do. The new headsets are also available from the company, at $24 each.
AT&T has already released a companion app, It Can Wait, for both iPhones and Android phones.
The app can work in full-screen mode for people without virtual reality headsets. Users can swipe on the screen or move the phone to look in different directions.
For those with headsets, the app can switch into stereoscopic, or side-by-side view, allowing users to feel as though they are actually behind the wheel of a moving car.
The app download comes in at over 300 MB, so it’s best installed when connected to a WiFi network.
