About This Class


Have you ever wanted to experience the new & exciting world of virtual reality at home, but though it was too expensive? 

Welcome to the Virtual Reality Lifestyle: How to Turn Your Smartphone into a VR Headset course!

If you have ever heard of or seen virtual reality, but thought it would cost way too much for you, then you're in the right place! New technologies, (such as VR headsets and smart glasses) are always very expensive when they first come out. Some VR headsets can cost upwards to $1000. In this course, I will show you the most affordable place to purchase VR headsets, so you can get a full VR experience for under $25!

Unlike PC powered headsets such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, this course will demonstrate mobile VR headsets which can be powered using your smartphone to view virtual reality video and games.

I will also demonstrate how you can actually make your own cardboard VR headset at home, using common household materials. Creating your own headset takes some time and requires a small investment, but can be a really fun project if you are a ‘do it yourself’ type of person.

This course also covers how to attach your smartphone to the VR headsets, how to download free VR games & apps, and you will actually join me as I demonstrate how to play various virtual reality games using your new headset.

So are you ready to experience the amazing world of virtual reality?


What the Course Covers:

  • Overview of Different Types of VR Headsets
  • Where to Purchase VR Headsets
  • VR Headset Unboxing and Setup
  • How to Make your Own Cardboard VR Headset at Home
  • Where to Download Free VR Games & Apps
  • How to Play VR Games on your Headset

The possibilities and uses for VR are limitless, and will undoubtedly change the our way of life, much like the internet did in the early 90’s. Virtual reality is still in its early stages, so I’m happy to be able to introduce you to VR, so we can be a part of this rapidly growing technology.

I want this to be a fun, interactive course, so be ready to follow along, and immerse yourself into the new world virtual reality!
