I’ve absolutely found myself coveting the Happy Meal Toys at McDonald’s before, so I hope that these new “Happy Goggles” boxes — which transform into VR goggles — will make their way from Sweden to the United States soon.
The boxes, which are comparable to Google Cardboard, will be available in a few select Swedish stores March 5th and March 12th. It’s a fun and accessible way to introduce VR, since all you need to do is put your cellphone in. Google Cardboards and similar goggles are pretty inexpensive, but it’s reported the McDonald’s Happy Goggles will only cost around $4. They might be a bit greasy and smell like food, but that’ll just make some videos more realistic, right?
