Students Create Virtual Reality Headsets on a Budget  

MakerSpace Virtual Reality Headset CreationDon't have a budget like Beyoncé? VR can be expensive at times. It doesn't have to be when there are everyday items you can use to construct an economic-friendly version VR Headset.

Using cardboard, lenses, Velcro, tape, a ruler, and some scissors, students were able to make their own VR headsets and explore both fun and educational apps to use them with. Virtual Reality apps let the user experience a rollercoaster simulator, practice Public Speaking in front of an audience, check out Mars, or practice being a doctor.
