Google has officially said goodbye to the Cardboard VR project to release inexpensive virtual reality headsets.
The official Google online store has stopped selling Cardboard VR, the gadget is marked as out of stock. Everything gradually went to this and Google’s step did not come as a surprise. In 2019, the company stopped developing the Cardboard SDK and handed over the project to the open-source community.
The Cardboard VR headset debuted in 2014. This is a very affordable do-it-yourself cardboard kit, the last price it was offered on the Google Store was $ 15.
In 2017, it was announced that Google had already sold 10 million Cardboard VR headset kits, and users downloaded compatible apps 160 million times from the Google Play store.
