VR systems like the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift are really cool but also really expensive.

That s why RiftCat created a new app, VRidge, that lets you play rich PC-based VR content on small devices like Google Cardboard and Gear VR, giving you the opportunity to try VR games without spending a few hundred dollars.

The app basically mirrors your VR screens on the mobile device and, more important, can tell your head position using the phone s on-board positioning systems.

Adding hand paddles or body sensing is a bit harder but VRidge s robust developer community is working hard to add motion sensing to their product and many have tried to use PS Move or Leap Motion and multiple cameras to create whole-room sensing systems.

The software is $15 and available now.

You can try it out for free but games are limited to 10 minutes in the trial version.
