If you want a cardboard VR headset that was made BEFORE the Google Cardboard come along the Refugio 3D is the HMD for you. Sadly it was simply ahead of its time! It was on IndieGoGo in 2013 and people were not ready for it which means it didn’t get the funding they were looking for.
Maybe if it was released again now it would be a different story because it is only these last few years that we have started to appreciate what a smartphone mountable HMD can do. There are still some around which might make them a rare and collectable item in the not so distant future.
