Experience New VR Possibilities with Cardboard Camera App

Google_Cardboard_VRThe new Google Cardboard Camera app now enables Android phone users to record virtual reality photos for viewing in Google Cardboard. This is similar to a panoramic smartphone image, but the user makes a full 360-degree rotation. A sound snippet is recorded at the same time. “The result is pretty striking: a three-dimensional panorama where near things look near, far things look far, and you can look in front of you, to your sides, or crane your neck all the way behind you to see the entire captured scene,” notes the Wired review. “Unlike VR video, the elements in the picture aren’t moving; it’s a stillframe moment in time, enhanced by the natural sounds of the scene.”
