Apple patents Google Cardboard in search of use for iPod

Apple files for a patent that looks extremely similar to the basic concept for Google Cardboard. It would appear that Apple has prepared for the eventuality that virtual reality lust would hit the iPhone community. What we're looking at today is a couple of patent applications that essentially have Apple owning the idea of a face and ears-mounted display carrier, a headset, that can use an iPhone as its display.

The trial for this case only lasted a week and was marred by accusations that the plaintiffs didn't actually have the iPods covered in the case at hand.
