Why are people in Japan sticking their heads into boxes?

Japan’s ‘Cardboard Theater’ uses your electronic device to create a private movie house.

The online trend in Japan is taking up social media by storm.

It involves people cutting holes in cardboard boxes, sticking their heads inside, and then using their tablets or smartphones to watch videos.

It’s like your own private in a movie theater.

The only drawback is that it does get a little warm in the box.

Mashable reports that there have been mentions of the idea dating back to 2013, with a flood of activity starting earlier this year.

Maybe Google’s VR headset, Cardboard, has something to do with the surging trend.
