I liked it at first, but I find the screen to be too bright and there is no way to change this. My eyes tire quickly and I have to stop after a few minutes. Also, my phone heats up and the battery drains at an alarming rate. I might change my rating if the app is fixed. After all, it is still the best VR experience at this price point. Well, the only VR platform at this price point, actually.
Best option out there for all VR needs I would really like to give this a 5 star rating, but it needs one more feature. It needs to be easily controlled with a Bluetooth remote or gamepad. Not all viewers have the magnet functionality, and sometimes even that isn't very reliable. Having the ability to navigate menus, calibrate, etc with a controller would increase the functionality drastically. Then you could easily transition to watching movies, playing games, etc.
Lots of missing features Landscape view, configurable BT controller support, fully adjustable cardboard viewing parameters, gyroscope calibration or better drift compensation (use compass!), UI adjustments such as 'point to select time', rotational multiplier so you don't need to twist your head off, standardise start and end procedure (when the user first puts on or removes their headset), optionally use the accelerometer to determine automatically if the headset has been placed or removed. I could go on!
Not working with Lenovo Vibe K4 Note When I installed first time on my Lenovo Vibe K4 Note it's fine but after some time app not working and crash so I uninstall and reinstall than it is not open/working only main black screen appear and asking Let's get you set up Are you using a cardboard V1 viewer? And no any touch effect and than crash. Please solve
It's pretty cool It's a cool idea. But I feel like I'm looking at a world in tunnel vision. Or like I'm looking at an elephant with binoculars at point blank to try and admire it's beauty. I can see it, but only in sections. It just doesn't give that full immersion wrap around feeling that other virtual reality systems give you. I would really like to see something like a 3D phone, sort of the way Nintendo did the 3DS with an inward 3D view. That would be wicked cool. But I do love the direction this tech is heading in. 👍
Interesting Just experimenting so early days. It does hold a lot of promise and after I/O 2016 I've got a lot to look forwards to. A few things could be improved. There's not a lot of literature on how to best use it. You need to fully rotate the headset to go "Back" and not all Bluetooth accessories are of any use at all. As a debut/toe dip it is great fun.
