Take the AirVR Kickstarter project for example. It’s a kit which lets you strap an iPad Mini or iPad Mini Retina onto your face, transforming it into a ludicrously over-sized Oculus Rift-like virtual reality headset.
Like the Samsung Gear VR, the kit is essentially a shell with straps, with two lenses to focus the iPad Mini’s screen. There’s also a cutout in which on-screen calibration and control buttons can be accessed.
While we highly doubt you’d ever use it in public, there’s a chance the neighbours will see you as they walk past. Best to stick to the basement or attic, with the windows drawn.

A better alternative is the AirVR+, which is designed for the smaller iPhone 6 Plus, which looks substantially less ridiculous.
There are also a few apps thrown in for good measure, including a virtual photo gallery and a movie app which lets you enjoy content like 3D YouTube videos in a virtual cinema.
The PanoVR app will let you revisit places you’ve visited with 360° panoramas, and there’s an open source SDK for developers to create more content too.
