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.
Needs compatibility I LOVE these demos, the graphics are beautiful. However, I don't have cardboard- I have a VR headset which uses motion control for menu selection. The fact that this app is not compatible with other headsets is a big let down. Would have loved it otherwise!
The apps are fantastic but my Google Cardboard don't have a QR Code. I can't find any QR Code on my Google Cardboard device when I want to link it to my "Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini" Phone. Please update!
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
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.
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!
