    You will be able to get a cardboard headset packed with the newstand edition of the swimsuit edition for 10 bucks only the first 500,000 though.

    When the Swimsuit issue comes out today, it will do so alongside an iOS and Android companion app, featuring news, photography, video, and — more unusually — virtual reality clips. Like The New York Times, Sports Illustrated is including Cardboard-compatible headsets with its magazine. Instead of going to subscribers, though, they're bundled with about 500,000 special newsstand versions of the Swimsuit issue, which will cost around 10 dollars — two dollars above the normal price. (Subscribers will apparently be able to order a headset for $2.99.) The app itself will have unlockable content that's free for subscribers or buyers of the special edition, but $4.99 for everyone else. That includes about half of the clips in the VR section, which can be unlocked on its own for $1.99. It's one of the first paywalls I've seen for non-pornographic 360-degree video, and it's something that other VR filmmakers are going to have to start thinking about soon.
