WITH NEXUS 5 AND GOOGLE CARDBOARD, SKYRIM 3D IS POSSIBLE

Anyone with a Nexus 5 smart phone and Google Cardboard can experience The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in 3D, using a simple app and streaming hardware.

After Google's initial Cardboard reveal, in which it unveiled an experimental, cheap way to experience smart phone apps in virtual reality, users began trying new approaches with the makeshift system. By using the cardboard rig, a Nexus 5 (or perhaps other high-end smart phone) and Trinius Gyre, a streaming app that handles the streaming information and sensor data, users can experience Skyrim in 3D, according to Geek.

Skyrim isn't the only game that this trick can be used on –– any number of apps can be experienced likewise. According to Geek, lag may be a problem, but that is only a result of aging network technology.
