SRC + VR Resources = Game On fun!

Whilst it is still early days for VR platforms, most of which are quite expensive, libraries are in an important position to provide users with access to this emergent technology.

Google Cardboard is a super clever, low-cost, virtual reality (VR) viewer designed to be used with most Android and iOS smartphones. The viewer can be used to view a variety of content including 360 videos, VR stories and VR games.
