Google Cardboard

We recommend using Google Cardboard to experience the virtual reality features in 3D. Google Cardboard is a holder made from cardboard that turns your smartphone into a pair of virtual reality glasses, allowing you to enjoy the full Gottardo VR experience in 3D. Cardboards can be purchased from our partner VR Cardboard. You can also always use the app’s virtual reality feature without a Cardboard – simply choose the corresponding feature in the app.
