The company is giving away 1,000 headsets so that people can try out its virtual reality app for Android devices and for iPhones. It’s also a way to get people to sign up for their monthly newsletter.

If you aren’t quick enough to make it into the first 1,000 who reply, you can still get your own virtual reality headset for as little as $5 from any of these vendors.
