If you’re a Verizon customer and a Star Wars fan, you can swing out to select stores (while supplies last) and pick up a free Star Wars-themed Google Cardboard VR viewer as part of their #WhyNotWednesday promotion.
The viewers can be used in conjunction with the “Jakku Spy” content that’s available through the official Star Wars app, which is designed to give fans a taste of what it’s like to be a spy for the Resistance. It will be the first of nine virtual reality missions that will be released leading up to the premiere of The Force Awakens.
Verizon sent us some sample viewers, and while not functionally different than a standard Google Cardboard viewer, they are pretty cool collector’s items. Plus, if you haven’t tried one out before, you’ll really dig the VR experience that apps like Star Wars and Google Street View can provide.
Check out a promotional video below to see how the viewers work.
