Google Cardboard is a fold-out cardboard smartphone mount that, when combined with lenses, a magnet, a piece of hook-and-loop fastener and a rubber band and held against the face, affords a virtual reality experience. A smartphone with stereoscopic display software fits into this device and the lenses allow a person to perceive left and right images as a single three-dimensional image. The headset is designed by Google, but there is no official manufacturer or vendor for the device. Instead, Google has the list of parts, schematics, and assembly instructions freely available on their website, recommending people assemble one themselves from readily available parts. The hardware was announced at Google I/O in June 2014... The official Google Cardboard SDK uses OpenGL... In addition, there are Google Chrome VR Experiments implemented using Web G L; phones supporting WebGL can run Google's web experiments. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Cardboard
