As it has already been pointed out in this tutorial, HoloBuilder has dedicated support for Google Cardboard and similar devices. A more detailed step-by-step guide is given in the following instructions:
- Get a Google Cardboard or similar device, for example from here.
- Open a #Holo in your smartphone’s mobile web browser (preferably Google Chrome). For a start, we would recommend this good-looking one.
- Enable the sensor and cardboard modes of the HoloPlayer (see the red box in the image below). Tap on each icon to change the mode.
- Put your smartphone into your cardboard device. The tiny dot at the center of the screen is for clicking objects. Place it on an object for a short amount of time – until the loading circle is completed – for clicking and triggering an action. This way you can “walk around” in your virtual tour.
View the additional video tutorial to get a better understanding of the cardboard mode. The whole process and set-up are explained in the video below. Go ahead and grab yourself a cardboard and get excited! 🙂
We want to end this tutorial with an advanced tip for troubleshooting, in case you are experiencing problems with your Android phone and its sensors:
- Please install a compass app.
- Move and turn around by 360 degrees to see if everything is working properly or if there are problems with you sensors.
- If there are problems, please reset your compass according to Google’s tutorial.
Now everything should work properly and you should be able to enjoy your #Holo in your Google Cardboard.
If you experience other problems or have any further questions concerning the use of the cardboard mode, please write us an email.
