Google Cardboard

At the University of Tasmania, we are inspired by the link between technology and the imagination. We always aim to push further, to broaden horizons, to challenge convention.

That's why we've come up with a game changer.

A device so stunning and so easy to use it re-imagines and redefines the student experience. It embodies all that we aim to achieve at the University of Tasmania.

Google Cardboard is a smartphone-based Virtual Reality platform that takes an inexpensive cardboard constructed viewer and, by inserting the everyday phone into it, transforms it into an immersive panoramic experience of selected university campus locations.

We believe an image speaks a thousand words. This device speaks more than any pamphlet or handout – it speaks to our sense of adventure.

Once a smartphone is inserted into the VR Viewer and the application loads up, the VR Viewer application senses movement and rotates the image accordingly, creating the illusion that you are experiencing stunning campus images. It's as if you were standing right there.
