An app for sharing panoramic photos has added a virtual reality update that lets people view those photos with an iPhone and Google Cardboard.
Yes, that’s right, free app RoundMe’s latest update lets you look at various locations, captured in full 360 degrees by photographers from around the world without any need for an Oculus Rift headset. So says TheNextWeb.
All you need to do is get the app (it’s free), fire up the location you want to look at, press the VR button and insert your iPhone into a Google Cardboard headset that you can build yourself and put it on your head, and you can look around as if you’re standing right where the photographer was when they took the shot.
Sounds pretty sweet, right? Check out the promo video RoundMe put out about the update, and tell me you’re not thinking about making your own Google Cardboard headset and using or borrowing an iPhone to check it out. I know I am.
