Does anyone know the state of the Cardboard SDK on Unity 5? Any official ETA from Google?

Also, does anyone know if Google is planning on open sourcing VRToolkit? I found a decompiled JAR on Stack Overflow, but it was for an earlier version.

It works with Unity 5, just disable the CardboardGUI GameObject, or use the Development Build.

You can decompile VRToolkit by yourself. I decompiled the UnityCardboardActivity.jar only, because I needed some fixes of the input handling and the Immersive mode fix on older devices. Then I recompiled it again with Eclipse and it works like a charm. Anyway, it should be open-sourced, because the plugin is not designed very well, especially the need of overriding the main activity.

So excited to find this group. I hace real passion for VR and storytelling. Cant wait to see what I can do. I really want to create most of the first book of the dark tower series by stephen king to VR or at least a panoramic storytelling interaction. I did a 16 bit version of the story with rpgmaker2003 a while back. Id like to recreate the experience With at the very least panoramic vr. Thanks for all the great tips on here. Thanks for this amazing opportunity Group. I hope its all the rage in 2022.

That sounds really cool. Would love to create some music for something like that.

A nice tool for creating space skyboxes. Might be useful for people here.

Hi all, I just updated to Unity 5 which is awesome. I am experiencing strange things with it though...

After their app has been built, has anyone seen their walls or any type of models in the scene with weird black lines on them? see picture, the gray wall should not have the jagged lines going across, just the one larger shadow.

. If anyone knows how to fix that I would be grateful.

Try adjusting your shadow bias. It looks like its set to close.

Somebody tried Cardboard SDK with Unity 5? I'm trying right now but my project isn't working properly (stereo cam is fine but I also have some standard cams in the scene and all of them are in black) neither the SDK demo scene which is not working at all.

Anyone else have tried Unity 5? Is working as expected or having any issue?

The all-black/all-white demo scene problem is caused by the CardboardGUI script. Disable it, and the scene should work in Unity 5.

Hey guys! I'm the developer behind +VR Codex. I'm super busy at work, and my free time has been highly reduced. Anyone interested in taking over the site?

For Unity 4, Pro only. For Unity 5, Free (aka Personal) works too.

Nice concept. Your player is taking up quite a bit of screen space, and should be set a little lower on the bird-bee.

Currently, we are testing on: Note4, Galaxy S4 and S5 as well as Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tablet, all running roughly the same and near the same quality as you see in the video.

+Google Cardboard more explanation on cardboard app(sdk) issue that i commented on few days ago.
just now i factory reset my iOcean X8 because it stuck on continuous reboot loop. then after reboot, i download and try cardboard app, it's working fine, then i use iRoot to root my iOcean X8, then after root, i tried cardboard app again then the issue appear again. 
so my conclusion is cardboard sdk have bug with rooted device though some peoples believe there phone isn't rooted and still having same issue.

I'm an astrophysics graduate student, and I have been struggling recently trying to represent my 3D data in an elegant way (see attached picture).

I think that using a VR headset such as cardboard would be ideal because it is affordable and simple to use.  However I have very little Android programming experience.

Is there anybody out there who is interested in this type of work that would like to collaborate with me?  As a first step I would like to see my data in 3D, but I would love to see this become a fully fledge app that anybody can use to view their data.  I think this is something that the scientific community very much needs.

+Dan Smith that's weird that 7500 points are laggy. You may consider using webgl.

It works, but the demo scene has a glitch, due to the CardboardGUI script not being compatible -- the OnGUI trickery it does may not work in Unity 5. Disable or delete that script from the scene.

I tried gathering as much information as possible on all announced VR headsets I could find. Found 25 headsets. The information has a lot of blanks, is a bit messy, but as far as I know it's still one of the more comprehensive and up to date collections. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could add more info. Any little bit helps.

+Bernie Roehl Thanks. I didn't expect there to be so many smartphone frames. I'm gonna pass on them for now as I want to focus on the smartphone-less ones first and get those in a presentable shape. I'll loop back around after I'm done with those (or if someone has some time to spare, I'd appreciate if someone else added them as new stuff can be added by anyone).
