To view the videos on the NYTVR and Guardian VR apps, I used my own VR cardboard headset to view the footage. Using the cardboard headset will give me the full experience and allow me to fully immerse myself into the world I am watching. I will also view the videos without the headset and use the 360 degree viewing mode so I can give myself an experience with using both viewing methods. The phone slots in the back and when you play the video it blocks out light from the top and sides using the large flaps you use to close it.
