Fix: Google Cardboard Magnet not working with Nexus 4

It might be ugly, but hey - it's just cardboard

May 31st, 2015

I have difficulties getting the magnet slider to work with the Nexus 4. The phone sometimes reacts if slid out far to the left, but that does not feel like a solution. So I thought: The magnet simply causes a tap. Why not just tap the screen directly? So with a finger sized carved out hole on the side of the headset signed yours truly, tapping the phone's screen is just as simple as sliding the magnet. Not pretty, but it works. :)

Note the hole under the magnet slider ring.
