The View-Master
The View-Master is a child-friendly device using Google's Cardboard virtual-reality platform.

On Friday, Google and Mattel announced the fruit of a new partnership: a View-Master that uses Google’s Cardboard technology.

Cardboard is Google’s virtual-reality platform, and Mattel hopes to use it in a product that will allow kids to explore famous places, landmarks, planets, and so forth. It uses an Android smartphone as the display and the View-Master itself as the housing.

This device is a successor to the View-Master made decades ago, which projected 3D-like images as children flipped through its picture reels.

It might be what Mattel needs to hold off rivals such as Hasbro and Lego. The company’s revenue has been decreasing slightly in recent quarters, even while the aforementioned have been able to increase theirs.

Google and Mattel expect the View-Master to be released in October.

  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this during my
    search for something concerning this.

  2. I must thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this site.

    I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade content from you in the future as well.
    In truth, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to
    get my very own site now ;)
