Taking inspiration from the form of Google Cardboard, Paralo Play is a 3D-printed virtual reality headset that improves on the design's ergonomics and comfort.

When Google first launched its version of the VR headset in cardboard, it was prized for making virtual reality technology accessible and affordable for everyone. However, people seeking more permanent virtual reality viewers are looking for more long-lasting alternatives -- Paralo Play is one device that delivers.

The 3D-printed device includes a slot to accommodate over 30 phone types, plus a shape that pairs well with gestures. Since this device was designed with kids in mind, it's also waterproof, drop-proof and comes with built-in lenses so that there is no assembly required before getting into a VR game, movie or 360-degree experience.
