What is the essence of Google Cardboard and how they work?


 

The screen of the smartphone is divided into two parts, the left area of ​​the left eye and the right, respectively, to the right. Left image captures much of the image on the left and the right from the right. Thus, simulated 3D effect itself and arranged a person’s vision, it is when it comes to the surface.
 

In order to dive into the world of virtual reality lenses are used, the distance between them and the screen will be about 5 centimeters. Lens will not only reduce the focal length, will reduce the burden on the eyes, but also narrows the field of view, which in this case affects only the hand. That such a guileless scheme. The only condition is the screen size of the gadget. According to Google «planshetofony” not in vogue, so will Google Cardboard smartphones only five inch, diagonal 5.5 comes with difficulty, but a 4.5 fall.
 

By the way, I forgot to mention the fact that as soon as we put the smartphone in glasses, runs firmware application Google Cardboard (of course, you need to download and pre-install). This occurs via NFC tags attached to the inner side of the accessory. Another of the items on the left side there is a magnet that, if you have a smartphone magnetometer can emulate pressing.
