I'm updating an app to use the newer version of cardboard.jar, which I guess was pushed to github on 12/18/14.

One thing I noticed just now is that the field of view seems noticeably wider with the new sdk, which makes the text in the app a bit less legible.

I was rather attached to how things looked under the old cardboard.jar

Before I try to reoptimize the UI, I figured I'd ask: does anyone know what the default field of view values for top/bottom/left/right angles were for the eyeTransform under the old cardboard.jar?

The new angles are: 40/40/35.1/40

Bonus Questions:

Why does the left eye have a nearly 5 degree smaller angle than the right?  I guess this just has to do with the general sizing of phones and cardboard?  

Also, do the default values for these angles change from device to device?

Thanks!

Hi all,

I posted stereogram for cardboard a few months ago, but just released a substantially revised and more fully featured version.

-This one uses the full cardboard sdk (opengl) for a hopefully more immersive experience.
-All features are also accessible through on-screen click targets rather than just voice commands (that was a sticking point on the old version).
-You can load your own stereoimages onto your phone and browse them in the app.

Would love to hear any feedback if you give it a shot.

Thanks!

Oh, one known issue: Getting the UI to resize when you zoom in/out.
Stereogram uses Google Cardboard to present vivid 3D images from history.Po...

I was lucky enough to stumble into a doggy halloween costume party at Tompkins Sq. Park on Saturday.

My three favorites:

My moto 360 is informing me that I've walked less than 2,000 steps on average over the thanksgiving holiday... Does that make it a smartass watch?

Great deals to be had... just be aware that you get what you pay for. My $1.29 hammer held up amazingly well for six months, before succumbing to its second-rate genetic destiny.
