A low cost competitor to Occulus Rift.   It positions your smart phone to serve as a viewscreen for the double display of the screen.  There are also lenses to make it work like a stereo viewer.   You can make it yourself (using your own cardboard and the pattern they supply).  Or you can buy a kit for $25.   I assume they also supply an app.

It's simple. Follow Google's instructions and you can fold up some cardboard with your Android smartphone and create your own virtual reality headset. The surprise papercraft package was a hit yesterday at the Google I/O conference.

There are a number of holders becoming available to hold a smartphone for such a purpose. In my view, probably a much better idea than Oculus Rift

 

Phone resolutions are getting suitably high, already have motion sensors and connectivity options and I can use it as...a phone and everything else, plus it's upgradeable.

 

With O.R. I'm buying that hardware just to be a headset.
