I came up with a way to do VR without the headset

I call it Anaglyph AR mode. Basically run your phone in AR mode for 6dof (no passthrough camera). And use anaglyph glasses :anaglyph for the 3D effect.

I know what you're thinking wtf? This sucks! lol actually it doesn't suck. It works better than expected. Maybe even better than an actual VR headset for a number of reasons.
1. No motion sickness
2. No need for chaperones since you can just walk around and still see the real world
3. No comfort issues

Here's a video of it in action. You can get an idea of the effect if you watch this on your phone with anaglyph glasses.

But the main point is to put it out there so maybe other people will expand on it.
