Full Virtual Reality Test Drive on Your Phone

Full Virtual Reality Test Drive on Your Phone

Those interested in trying out the Volvo XC90 before it’s released next year can take a scenic virtual reality ride through the mountains via the Google Cardboard headset and a smartphone.
The system functions similarly to Oculus Rift, but is significantly more accessible as it uses only cardboard, two lenses, and a magnet. Attendees at the Los Angeles Auto Show could download the Volvo Reality app and insert their phone into Google’s setup. Alternatively, people can go for a spin at their leisure by requesting a Volvo-branded Google Cardboard kit or building their own VR viewer.
