Introduction to Cardboard – Accessible Virtual Reality

Track this Workshop

In this workshop, Connie Leung will guide participants through the construction of a cardboard unit, walk through connecting the device to the cardboard app and to Google Streetview and help participants troubleshoot their construction. A limited number of cardboard kits will be available, so teams will share kits. In order to have the kit up and running, you must have the android operating system and an internet-enabled mobile phone. These are not required to attend but are required to fully participate
