There is a virtual reality game that will be showcased at the Anime Expo 2016 next week which is called Nagomi’s Earcleaning VR.

RiftCat has an application called VRidge for Android which allows users of Android-based VR headsets, such as Google Cardboard, to play PC Virtual Reality games on those non-PC VR headsets.

This essentially means that if you own a Google Cardboard VR headset you can play most, if not all, SteamVR games without needing to pay $799 to own an HTC Vive.
