Using Vuforia for virtual controllers in a VR experience

January 20, 2016 - 9:46pm #1

Playing around with the AR/VR demo got me to thinking that Vuforia would be great for creating controllers for Google Cardboard VR experiences.  Oculus, Vive, and Samsung have all announced their own controllers, but I was thinking that with Image Targets and virtual buttons you could make some pretty nifty controllers for Cardboard, at least for testing out interaction ideas.  

Below are a couple of videos I recorded with my initial attempts at this idea:

super cool. Was thinking of something in a nearby ballpark : using a second phone with vuforia, and sending it's position back to main Carboard unit via bluetooth.
