Does anyone know if i can make/buy a Cardboard-like vr thing for the note 4? I believe that the gear vr will not be released anytime soon.

I've got a Google cardboard from when I had a Samsung galaxy s5 but the note 4 is too big to fit properly...

So if you buy or make one make sure it's bigger than the generic one so the note 4 will fit.

Better late than never

Note 4 doesn't fit well in Google Cardboard but is possible to use , just be sure to give it few more rubbers to not loose your Note4.

There's also available unofficial XL version, but it's much expensive, there's a lot similar devices like : SmartBox3D, Durovis Dive, Stooksy
Use VR player for dedicated VR SBS movies, but remove magnets before this. Effects are stunning.

Sorry, are you referring to a consumer edition of the Gear VR? Because the Gear VR Innovator Edition has already been released, it's been on sale since Dec. 8th for $200... Apparently it is completely possible to use any Google Cardboard VR apps with it as well, you just need to block the Oculus Home app from launching. There's a thread about it somewhere on this site, can't remember where but just search.

I have this one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/251766752348
fits the note 4 perfectly, without any cases.

One problem is that, it doesn't have any magnetic switch. I sometimes use a piece of neodymium magnet salvaged from a hard drive as a substitute.

In case you were still curious about this Google has made a new version of their cardboard that will support the larger phones. I use a version of the original that I modified the dimensions on to fit my Note 2 and it works great with my Note 4. I just found out though that the magnetic sensor is in a different spot.

On the original cardboard layout the magnet is closer to the top (upper right of the phone when laid top side to the left) and on the Note 2 it worked fine. It didn't work with the Note 4. I moved the magnet across the top of the phone and it triggers right in the middle in line with the camera. I moved the magnet in my cardboard to rest in the middle and it works perfectly.
