The maker of a broad range of Google cardboard pop-up viewers has developed a plastic VR headset that fills a gap in the market. Consumers have been able to expect anything from affordable corrugated paper models to robust and pricey virtual reality gear, yet this product brings affordability and durability together.

The I AM Cardboard dscvr headset accommodates a range of iPhones and Android smartphones that measure anywhere between 4 and 6 inches. A silicone flap safeguards your handset from slipping out and keeps it protected from collecting dirt. The portability of this plastic VR viewer is enhanced with a spring-loaded, retractable chassis and a carrying case. Unlike the vast majority of virtual reality headsets on the market, this one is hard to bust, easy to pack and ideal for entertaining kids on the road.
