Fancy a free Google Cardboard? Optus Stores are giving them away right now

Want to get in on the VR craze but don’t want to pay a cent? Well, you’re in luck – Yes Optus stores are giving away free Google Cardboard headsets today as part of a new promotion for Troye Sivan's latest single, ‘Talk Me Down.’
