A site to discuss Google Cardboard and similar virtual reality viewers, their software, other content and subjects related for phone based VR.
Cardboard is a Google project to provide both an affordable, cardboard based, Virtual Reality viewer for your phone and software tools to create VR experiences that can place the user in another location or world.
The viewer places two lenses in front of the screen, and the software generates separate images with slightly different perspective for each eye, which the brain interprets as 3D. A gyroscope sensor in the phone is used to track head movement, and VR apps match the rendered image to the current view direction, allowing the user to look around.

I have a weird hdmi to mipi thing (basically a phones screen with hdmi) I was wondering if theirs a program for Windows that gives the basic side by side effect to a certain display I don't need the vr effect or stereoscopic (although it would be cool)
is there a pc app. make the pc screen to look like a gear vr head mount when you look through the lens, because I want to use moonlight game stream to my pc to the gear vr since i tried all the gear vr and google cardboard vr and none are that great for gaming and stereoscopic 3d (sbs and ou) on pc.
the only best thing was using "chrome remote desktop" on pc as a host and using the "oculus web browser" to stream my desktop to it (not the best but it was okay) but have input lag and doesn't have the whole screen. 2nd one was intugame vr - it has no head tracking but does stereoscopic 3d decent but have the screen in my face. 3rd one was trinus vr - it's like intugame vr but you can't recenter your view.
unless there a good app. or tutorial to use moonlight game stream with a some kind of app. or remote desktop as good as "moonlight game streaming" to play stereoscopic 3d in gear vr screen.
note: for the 2nd and 3rd app. i have to put "gear vr service" into "mirror mode" on my samsung galaxy s8 to use google cardboard apps.
This would be for people using their cell phones and a VR cell phone headset.
I'm stuck on rotate horizontally. How do I calibrate my unknown japanese viewer (Pico U Lite)?
vor einigen Jahren gab es einige VR-Cardboards als kostenlose Werbe-Gadgets zu bestellen. Bestimmt hatte ich auch 5 oder 6 Stück davon. Hängen geblieben bin ich bei meiner VR-Box, die aber auch nur 10 Euro inkl. Controller gekostet hat
Ebenfalls vor einigen Jahren ist auch eine AR- bzw. MR-Varianten auf den Markt gekommen. Billige ARYZON- oder Hololens-Cardboards gab es. Diese hab ich aber niemals irgendwo kostenlos gesehen.
Gibt es diese Pappkammeraden noch irgendwo kostenlos oder als sehr günstigen Schnapper zu bestellen?
You can see the center line is to the left.
I'm on Android 10.
Is there a decent physical camera (not just an app) that can be used to create stereo images/recordings (two lenses about eye width apart) for use with Cardboard or something similar?
Hi, I have an unbranded cardboardy device and an iPhone SE 2020. I’m no technophile but it seems to me that the screen resolution is 750x1334 (viewport 375x667 whatever that means), so it should not matter if video is 4k, 2K, or 1080p in terms of VR experience. But I swear it the higher resolution looks better. Downside is, pretty taxing to my not-fancy phone to have those higher resolutions. Am I crazy? Can it literally just not matter? If it does, why? Thanks.
Is there a game with camera hand tracking? im looking all over the web but nothing. is there a game or applicatio that uses that??
I got a new phone and cannot find this in play store anymore or figure out how to install the APK, which was from 2016. anyone know a good replacement?
there was also an app called sites in vr that has proven elusive. any help would be great, thank you!
What was the name of that app that allowed you to download short little experiences, there was like 5 of them, and one was of the Simpsons.
I've posted a bit about developing my own headset, as well as the progress updates with doing so! However, there are still many questions that can't go into a post. These are things like
/u/ItsVRK had similar thoughts and is doing an interview on how I made the headset, as well as the steps I am taking to reach the final product and everything in between! For those interested, I am leaving the link below so you can join and share your thoughts! Hope to see you soon!
My name is Kate Clark and I’m part of a team of researchers from the University of Sydney. We are researching accessibility barriers that are created by virtual reality and augmented reality technology. The goal of our research is to figure out how we can make VR and AR hardware more accessible (the ethics approval for our research is 2023/352 and we also have linktree – linktr.ee/vrdisability).
We are looking for people with disabilities who have tried AR and/or VR before to complete our survey and tell us about their experiences.
The survey should take no longer than twenty minutes to complete, and if you don’t want to or can’t answer a question, all the questions are skippable. You can find the survey link here: https://sydney.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2nl7O5LKer2R3ro

I am a teacher and would use a set of android phones. I would qr code from Google maps a photosphere, but when they scan i set to open in streetview app. Using Google cardboard, the streetview allowed to split and active the gyros.
Well, Google killed the streetview app...even older apks won't work as they killed the back end too.
Using Google maps there is a tilt to view.....but NO VR split. Does anyone know if this is integrated into another Google map....or does anyone know if there is a work around to get VR using Google cardboard and the streetview photospheres?
While I love Google, so frustrating that they killed this app off as it was an amazing resource for teaching history...taking kids to museums (inside), historical sites, and just exploring geography effects on culture. Btw Google cardboard app is no as well.
Thanks for any help
I'm thinking on getting a Google Cardboard for movie viewing on the go, i only use my Quest for gaming. do you have any suggestions, my price range is 8 to 20 dollars. some phone suggestions for google cardboard viewing would also help, thanks!
Hi I'm a developer that needs a VR headset. It doesn't need to be 6DOF or anything fancy with tracking/fov/resolution. Normally back in the day, I would just buy a Google Cardboard but since they've been deprecated, I can't. They won't work with my iPhone 13 Pro Max based on the dimensions and research I've done.
On this sub, I know most of the advice is "get away from mobile VR, invest in a modern headset." I do agree with that, and I'd be happy to invest in a good headset for the future. Normally, I'd just buy a Quest 2 right now but with the Quest 3 coming out soon, I'd rather wait for that and buy it if Meta fixes some of the outstanding problems in the current lineup. In the meantime, I just need something cheap with stereoscopic vision that I can view VR with.
My question: Is there anything similar to the Google Cardboard in terms of PRICE today that I could buy until the Quest 3 releases?
Hey, I realize I’m late to the party but just got a cardboard VR. I tested it with YouTube and I enjoy it. Anyway to get a side by side launcher or just force apps like Twitch and movie apps to display in VR friendly format? I don’t mind if it’s 2D. More so just a nice large screen while laying in bed. TYIA
So i bought the vr box 2.0 with the remote and when i turn on gamemode i cant use the joystick or the buttons i tried a gamepad tester app and it didnt show anything there either can someone help me to get my controller to work (My phkne is Samsung M32s)
I recently brought a Google Cardboard VR headset. I was wondering if there are any metaverse platforms available on Google Cardboard?
TLDR: WIP: My Cardboard Project.
There are times when it takes exhausting weeks to get 'simple things' done...
But not today!!! Today I hit up the shader graph for the first time, across split UV's and hit all the curve balls out of the park. Kept 30FPS, in Sterio (most of the time..) and on an old Android (A51).
And tomorrow, I'm just hitting the Asset Store :D
I know that one can view panoramas in VR in Google Photos, but there seems to be no way to switch to next/previous one without taking phone out, etc..
So what I am looking for is an application which would allow viewing panoramas, and also hopefully 3D photos, and allow for using, for example, volume control buttons for navigation. My headset does not have a dedicated button, and I couldn't manage to jury-rig it myself.
Just curious. I can't find anything about just playing any old video you like.
I just need to know..
