Previously available for Google Daydream View headsets and the phones that power them, Google has followed up on the promise to expand the VR experience in Chrome, and in typical Google style they kicked off an entirely new website. At WebVR Experiments you'll find content for both Google Daydream and Cardboard, Android VR experiments, A.I. experiments and even what they call Art and Culture experiments.

If you don't have a VR viewer, you can order a Daydream View or Google Cardboard viewer from Google (opens in new tab). In the meantime, you can view the experiments on your phone in 360 degrees by flicking your finger to move the virtual camera.

The new VR website launches with 13 different interactive, virtual things (we hesitate to call them videos), expanded from the original five. Google says more are on the way and you can even submit your own to make sure Google sees them. If you're a fan of VR this is one to keep an eye on.

  • Hi, I'm looking for a qr code for my samsung galaxy s7 to use cardboard vr. I tried the one given when downloading cardboard, but it sees my phone as note 5. Also my vr gear still goes to occulus home directly, even if i disable the permissions in occulus and vr gear settings. Is it because I'm not using the correct code or am I missing a step. I tried to enable device manager first. I cannot find the cb enabler app, or at least I'm out of pocket now lol and would really try to give google cardboard a go as there are so many vr games in playstore but I cannot do anything until this issue is fixed
