Toy-maker designs £15 VR headset in deal with Google
A toy-maker from the West Midlands has signed a deal with Google to design and manufacture a low-priced cardboard virtual reality headset which works with smartphones.
Wow! Stuff, based at The University of Wolverhampton's science park, has used Google's Cardboard app technology in its £15 headset.
It plans to have the headset on sale in time for Christmas.
In comparison, Sony's PlayStation VR headset will cost $399 (£280) when it is released on 13 October.
The small UK firm has previously designed remote-controlled toys Air Swimmers and Dave the Funky Shoulder Monkey.
