The Star Wars hype train won't stop, can't stop. With a week to go until the much anticipated release of The Force Awakens, Google is adding to the excitement by giving away some free Star Wars Cardboard viewers in the Google Store. Yes, completely free. They'll even cover shipping if you're in the US. This is not going to last long.

There are four designs to choose from: BB-8, R2-D2, Kylo Ren, and a Stormtrooper. Choose wisely—you can only order one per Google account. After you've ordered, the page will say "limit reached." This ensures the viewers will at least be available for more than a few minutes. Don't take too long deciding, though. I'm sure they'll still be gone fast.

Other than the Star Wars designs, these are standard Cardboard viewers. The measurements don't look large enough to accommodate bigger phones. It's 144mm wide, but the Nexus 6 (for example) is 159mm. Just keep that in mind.
