  • Virtual reality is not suitable for everyone and if you have any doubt whether you are suitable for virtual reality, please consult your Doctor.
  • In general, use of VR is not suitable for those who are pregnant, have high blood pressure, suffer from motion sickness, inner ear infections or claustrophobia, had any form of recent surgery, pre-existing binocular vision abnormalities, heart conditions or epileptic symptoms.
  • People who wear an implanted medical device such as a pacemaker should consult with a medical practitioner prior to using the VR as the phone used inside may emit radio waves which could interfere with the normal operations of such devices.
  • Those who have ever, or currently live with symptoms of epilepsy such as severe dizziness, blackouts, seizures or loss of awareness, should see a doctor before using VR. The content viewed through the Cardboard VR may include flashing images and repetitive sequences which, for a small portion of people, could cause seizures, even in those who have never experienced seizures in the past.
  • We recommend taking a 15 minute break from using the Cardboar VR every 15 minutes by removing the headset. Allow for a minimum of 30 minutes after using the Cardboard VR before operating any machinery.
  • It is the responsibility of an adults supervisor to monitor use of the Cardboard VR by children (age 13 and older). The Cardboard VR is not recommended for use below the age of 13.
  • When using the Cardboard VR, your vision is 100% obscured and when using headphones, your capacity to hear what is happening in your surroundings is reduced. Therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure you use the Cardboard VR in a safe secure environment free of nearby obstructions.
  • Avoid using the Cardboard VR in potentially dangerous surroundings which include sharp objects, balconies, stairwells and furnishings that are easy to break.
