Renderer to Google Cardboard

misc Android cardboard headset STEREO stereoscopy VR
Credits: http://intugame.com/ wich makes a nice free app+server combo that streams your desktop to an android device. Mr. Vux for the DX11 pack


http://intugame.com/ makes a nice free app+server combo that streams your desktop to an android device, it 's enjoyable and with an acceptable lag for a soo cheap VR setup.
I belive it can be used with many Others VR headsets wich load an andoriod inside.
Here are a DX9 and DX11 patches i made to test it out.
Start the apps on the pc and the phone, connect them via WIFI or USB tethering, maximize the stereoscopic renderer, hide borders and enjoy vvvv depthnesss;)

Added a version with headtracking support thru HyperIMU.
For a low latency video stream you can use http://limelight-stream.com/ (Requires you have gamestream capable NVIDIA card).

Does it work only on Android?

sapo 06/02/2016 - 07:25

hi vasilis, yes, but with some alternative software to Hyperimu and Intugame on other platforms you'll just need to readapt the headtracking communication part.
Btw Intugame has a iOS app the GYROSC should do the hyperimu job with some adjustment in the patch, in the end you need to get the orientation quaternion as with hyperimu.
lemme know if you get it working with other plaforms!

vasilis 06/02/2016 - 21:02

OK. When I will tried it I will let you know how did it go.

Btw do you have any suggestions for VR headsets that are compatible with almost all smartphones? The cheapest is google cardboard but I was looking for something more compact...not cardboard.

sapo 07/02/2016 - 07:56

Yea let me know, i don't have any suggestion about models, i built my own by cutting cardboards... but i'v seen plenty DIY 3dprintable models, check thingverse website.
Good luck

Moonlight (formerly known as Limelight) is an open source implementation of NVIDIA's GameStream protocol.
