Google Cardboard Viewer for Virtual Reality

Anyone know where to buy a Google Cardboard viewer in Taipei?

I tried to look for one too but didn't find it. I ended up buying from the internet.
No regrets! Cardboard is awesome!

I tried the Oculus Rift they have at that new place next to Guanghua, and I wasn't terribly impressed with the resolution; it could be that the Cardboard Viewer, with a hi-rez phone, could outperform it.

This Google Cardboard is great. Unfortunately, my phone get very hot. Even just using the simple mpo (stereograph) viewing mode.
I can only use it for 30 minutes. At most for stills and only 5 to ten for movies. Is there a less demanding app that is cardboard compatible? I'm using an Infocus M320. It supports the viewer but not the camera. I take 3D pictures using my Fuji camera in MPO mode.

I'm really baffled why my phone is overheating so with Cardboard. It runs all my applications very well, even multi tasking 2 or 3 apps.
I'm not going to buy another phone at least until late next. I really think they could be more efficient with the use of resources on my phone for simple still photos. Any way of cooling the thing down or slowing up the system.
