Short answer: No. We took the basic cutting templates available from Google, put some more effort into this and developed your own version of a Google Cardboard: Our POP! CARDBOARD. This is not a kit nor requires it your effort to be assembled. In addition is our POP! CARDBOARD certified by Google: WWGC - Works with Google Cardboard.

If you look closely you see our Cardboard (old color scheme) here: https://www.google.com/intl/de_ALL/get/cardboard/

The “Works with Google Cardboard” (WWGC) badge and term are designed to indicate that our VR viewer has been certified to be compatible with a Google Cardboard application ecosystem. In short: Our viewer has been confirmed by Google to work with all Google Cardboard applications.

Neither. The size of the viewer is same as the Google Cardboard v2. However, we omitted the bigger lenses and the conductive button to ensure maximum compatibility with phones and the best user experience. Please also ready the FAQ about the lenses, magnet switch and conductive button below.

Except your smartphone and our POP! CARDBOARD you do not need anything additional.

The magnet or rather the magnets (one on the inside and one on the outside) were intended as an input for your phone. If you pull the outside magnet down, the magnetic field changes and your magnetic sensor recognizes this as a click. So far so good. However, every smartphone has its magnetic sensor at a different position. Even if you have Google's Nexus phone, the magnetic switch would only work about half the time.

We prefer to use a thumb cut-out at the bottom of the cardboard. This allows you to touch the screen at any time, accurate and intuitive. In addition the thumb-cut-out grands faster clicking and swiping movements, perfect for gaming.

And yes, all phones and apps work with our thumb cut-out :).

As an improvement to the magnetic button of the Google Cardboard version 1, Google introduced a conductive button as a click input. Unfortunately tends this conductive button to wear out after a couple of uses and therefore non-stop presses against the phone's screen.

As a customer on Amazon.com state: "I immediately noticed there wasn't a "button" or magnetic slider to change pictures - it's just a an empty hole! Then I read the instructions and found out you stick your fingers through and touch the screen - very easy, and probably better than those flimsy magnet sliders that come on other cardboard models. Can't break your finger quite so easily as one of those..."

That is why we prefer to use a thumb cut-out at the bottom of the cardboard. This allows you to touch the screen at any time, accurate and intuitive. In addition the thumb-cut-out grands faster clicking and swiping movements, perfect for gaming.

And yes, all phones and apps work with our thumb cut-out :).

As defined by Google we are using double-convex lenses. Those lenses focus the light due to the double curvature stronger and enlarge the field of view, which improves the virtual reality experience significantly.

Great! Then why don't you use bigger lenses?

Nobody has exactly the ideal distance between the eyes. Due to the higher refraction of the bigger lenses, a slide off-center position results in a blurry image, and therefore dizziness. Smaller lenses as we use them, do not have that issue. In addition, they are about 10 times lighter.

POP! CARDBOARD is for everyone. Of course depending on your glasses' width (below 13 cm / 5.2 inches is perfect) , you can generally use all versions of the Cardboard.

If you have a NFC (Near Field Communication) Sensor in your phone, the NFC launches automatically the Google Cardboard App. This is very handy the first or secound time, after this it is maybe annoying. Therefore, we omit the NFC chip.
