Google Carboard - Android VR - tracking plugin.

Postby Fraser » 2015-06-20 22:47

I've created a plugin to provide device pose estimation on Android.

It uses a sensor fusion approach developed by Alexander Pacha, similar to Google Cardboard, but better.

Below is an APK with a small test room stereo scene, I invite anybody with cardboard or other HMD to try it out as a beta test and report back on how it compares to regular cardboard tracking:

On my phone (Samsung Note4) it seems quite a bit better than regular cardboard. Not as fast as Oculus tracking of course, but pretty good.

Thx :)

I've updated the demo APK in the first post, you can tap screen now to toggle tracking modes: Responsive ( my favorite ) or Accurate.

Plugin has now been battle tested and hardened after running on 7k devices in this game:

Some initial instability, it was my first JNI work, but I've learned a lot and now everything is cached for speed and leak free.

Plugin price reduced to $9.95 until 2016

neat! I noticed though that your 2 products are offline - which will happen every time if you change anything on the approved product except the special pricing tab. do you want me to reactivate them both again?
