Mattel’s View-Master Turns Virtual Reality

Mattel is updating its iconic View-Master toy for future generations. They’ve teamed up with Google’s Cardboard VR viewer to turn the slideshow goggles into an immersive virtual reality experience that allows kids to learn about the world in a completely different way. The headset will pair with Android devices and Mattel-made “reels” that feature various 3D scenes including San Francisco, the Solar System and even computer-generated dinosaurs. The new View-Masters are set to hit shelves sometime in October.
