'Millbox Touch' is the name of a Japanese virtual reality headset design that's similar Google Cardboard model. This model is made from folded cardboard and a few other accessories just like Google's device, but what really sets this device apart is a side panel that gives users tactile control.

This side-mounted panel gives users the ability to better navigate virtual environments. Like using a phone, a user it able to use this panel to swipe, scroll or tap to enter commands. At this year's SXSW, the headset was recognized as an Interactive Innovation Award 2016 finalist.

In order to give people more control in virtual reality experiences, input devices like suits, handsets and other peripherals are being created to increase the believability, look and feel of simulated environments.
