Keep up the great work I wondered what possibilities virtual reality could have for people who have low vision or visual impairments. I'm glad to see I wasn't alone in my thinking. Hopefully this keeps up. There needs to be an affordable type of esight device and cellphones have so many capabilities. Battery is an issue but couldn't that be rectified with a specific headset fof the phone. Just like oculus. Or Samsung vr headset. That could be attached to a battery pack. Either way, right direction !
Helpful vision aid, could be much improved I am visually impaired, and this is a really good idea for an app. Once it's setup and working, it seems to work pretty well (obviously limited by the quality of your phone camera). However, the control UI is pretty clunky, it should really be usable with the headset on. For example, pressing the magnetic button on the Cardboard should bring up the menu and a centered cursor, then point at the options and click to activate them. Also, there seems to be a bug where the NFC tag on Cardboard freezes the app.
Poor resolution I've installed this on my Galaxy S7 and found it to be awful resolution, can't read anything using it as it's all blocky and bad. I tried a VR camera app and the resolution on that is amazing so I'm not sure why this doesn't work... I zoomed out all the way and it's still poor
Brilliant Add a dimmer/brightness control and perhaps some sort of black & white/color toggle with some contrast control, there too, and I think this app will be the new way to correct vision - once the wearable tech catches up and slims down, which it's rapidly doing now. Please consider these additions. 5 star app, once they're included. - I had been trying to find someone to collaborate with on this very concept for some time now. Also - take advantage of laser/range sensors to integrate gesture controlled zoom?
My friend has macular degeneration and I turned him on to your app. He was comparing this to the very expensive optical device that acts similar. This is incredible thing you have done here. Can you make the digital zoom go up to 16x? This application could change a lot of people's lives for the better. I hope you can accomodate thanks! (phones be used are a s6 and s7)
