You Can Now Watch Any YouTube Video In Google Cardboard

Remember that scene in Back to the Future where Marty Jr. was rudely watching TV at the dinner table in giant glasses? Now, you can do that same thing with YouTube and Google Cardboard.

No, this new update doesn't turn every video into one of those awesome 360-degree videos that you can view in every direction. Instead, this update turns your VR headset into a personal home theatre. You can see a virtual screen "floating" in front of your face, no matter where you look.

This is similar to the Netflix virtual theatre app that the company released a couple months ago. While it's little more than a novelty right now, it is a neat way to isolate your viewing experience and have a mini-home theatre to yourself. The question is whether you'd really want to sit around with a VR headset strapped to your face just to watch YouTube. But now you can at least find out!
