USA Today: Virtual reality may be a part of your life sooner than you think. Google has announced a series of improvements to its Cardboard project, which aims to bring virtual reality to the masses, with the promise that you could be watching You Tube-stored VR videos come July. The changes to the year-old VR initiative — which uses software to transform an average smartphone into a 3-D-viewing device held in place by a $20 cardboard frame — are notable. They take virtual reality one step closer to being an experience that isn’t limited to owners of expensive gadgets such as Samsung VR ($250) and Facebook’s Oculus Rift (around $350).
