Oculus vs. Google Cardboard by Gili and Jonathan


Virtual Reality is an amazing experience because it feels like you're actually there. Virtual reality is much better when you have people or friends next to you to talk or discuss to. The Oculus Virtual Reality is compatible with Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge. There are many variations of this product, there is the Oculus that is compatible with a computer, and the other is compatible with a phone. The Oculus comes in 2 different colors. You can get black, or white.

The Night Cafe- It was a fantastic experience. I loved seeing the painting of Leonardo Da Vinci come to life. The way Leonardo Da Vinci made his painting helped the 3D artists make this an exciting adventure.

Jurassic World- It was a heart racing experience where you thought the dinosaur would eat me or crush me. It seemed real.

Google Cardboard:

The google cardboard is a fun and inexpensive virtual reality. The google cardboard will fit any phone. To use the cardboard you can simply go online or onto youtube and look up the video you would like. When you insert the phone the phone will read a scanner on the cardboard and being you to a website. The Cardboard is a good alternative for schools to learn and be in the virtual reality. There are some apps you can be in the kaaba, or in a science lab. Overall the cardboard is a good idea for schools and individuals to have.

Oculus VR:
Google Cardboard:
Made with metal and other electronic components.
Made from cardboard and magnifying glasses.
You can buy apps off the oculus website and rent apps from a service provider.
Works with any YouTube video and the gold cardboard app
Very clear. There is a crank to get the phone closer or farther away to enhance your vision with the app.
Clear with specific apps but blurrier than the Oculus VR
Assembly and Installation
To assemble the oculus you have to download an app and insert your phone into the slot provided.
To assemble the cardboard is somewhat difficult. You will have the stick glue to a certain spot and fold on the dotted lines. To install your phone just put it on the suction cups and watch your video.

The phones the oculus works with are Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge
