Verizon giving away free Star Wars-themed VR headsets
Select Verizon wireless retail stores will give away a limited number of Google Cardboard viewers to Verizon customers, the company announced today.
The giveaway starts tomorrow, December 2, with four different designs featuring BB-8, R2-D2, Kylo Ren, and the new First Order Stormtrooper.
You can download the app now, but the virtual reality content won’t be here until Wednesday. Which is probably when you’re reading this article anyway.
There is also a 360-degree trailer for Star Wars available on Facebook, but it doesn’t work in Google Cardboard mode. There’s a low-quality version that has been ported to YouTube which does work in virtual reality mode, but I had problems watching it because it was so pixellated.
Google also has a Star Wars themed experience for its desktop users.
