Cardboard Camera is a magnificent new app, developed by Google (makers of the Cardboard virtual reality headset), that makes it possible for you to convert your regular smartphone camera into a high-tech virtual reality snapper.

This app uses 360-degree photo function to create incredible virtual reality photos. All you have to do is tap the camera button and turn the device in full circle like you would when capturing a panorama, while in Cardboard mode. This causes the photos to become three-dimensional, making objects in the distance appear far away and close-up items pop out at you.

Virtual reality hasn't been around for a very long time, but the Cardboard Camera is Google's bold attempt to take the lead and bring virtual reality imaging to smartphones to make it accessible.
