App doesn't work with Galaxy S3. I've been having a problem with most apps designed to work with Google Cardboard. When the screen is supposed go into split screen it scales the images incorrectly, to about 1/4 the actual screen size and place themat the bottomed of the screen. The official app has this problem as do several other vr apps like 11:57, vrse and fulldrive. There is no way to fix this or manually adjust image size that i could find other that rooting the device and adjusting dpi or something. I'm not well versed enough in phones to do that nor do i want to void my warranty. Looking for a fix as I've been searching for a couple of days know and haven't found any.

So far I've only seen the problem occur on an S3 all the other devices I've tried seem to work fine. I tested 2 S3 and the same issues occurred on both, but not any other models.

Get in touch with the app developers and precisely describe the problem, how to reproduce it with screenshots.

This is a cross-platform bug and they need to address it. They have to profile the hardware their app is running on and do whatever it takes to make it run correctly.

Since there are thousands of device/OS version combos out there, it is hard to keep up. S3s are pretty popular, but already 3 or four years old so support might be getting dropped ...

18K+ HD stereo VR. That's more than quadruple 4K.
Plus it runs mirror smooth 60fps even on old devices.
Already for 120fps on Vulkan/LiquidVR devices!

Dedicated systems are for a specialized high-end market and cannot be considered mass market consumer devices (As in Cardboard? As in the title of this community?). Sure the Vive and CV are awesome, but so is Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic Spaceship Two.

We have developed a VR experience for a recognized movie studio.  At the moment we need an app developer with same credits to create the template/player (IOS/ANDROID) for our content  IE:  Expanse VR on Itunes is good example of simple player we like.  We're happy to re skin an existing app with new graphics.  Need to decide on vendor by 9/10.

There are many issues with Cardboard's Trigger concept. The V1.0 magnet has already been dropped in favour of V2.0 Capactive touch.
Stare-to-Click makes triggers unnecessary for many applications.
Which do you prefer:

Big question and not so easy answer. Anyone can run the math on how much it is a gain to have sensors next to cpu (like mobile VR) vs cable solutions (oculus)? Is there any noticeable legacy gain?

May I point out it's not a question of signal speed http://m.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=time+to+travel+2+meters+at+2%2F3+of+lightspeed&x=0&y=0. It's more a question of architecture.

Yes, as a VR developer I want the market to be glutted with cheap android-based Oculus knockoffs RIGHT NOW! Tech like LiquidVR and Vulkan are key.

Youtube will catch on soon. There are some other companies doing this like: https://www.gopano.com/live  and http://all360media.com/360-video-live-streaming/ . What I am looking forward to is YouTube 3D 360 Video! We currently have YouTube 3D and YouTube 360 but not together. It's on it's way! http://www.roadtovr.com/youtube-confirms-stereo-3d-360-video-support-coming-soon/

How to improve eye separation? By checking my eye matrix, I got to what looks like a gluLookAt matrix (makes sense, after all).

How one can tweak it to improve the stereo effect?
