Ostron Cardboard : A Journey towards Virtual Reality
Ostron Cardboard is virtual reality headset ,inspired by google cardboard purely made in india by ostron electronics pvt. ltd.
Ostron Cardboard works in general with every smartphone that is able to run virtual reality apps. That’s the most of modern Android phones (Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or above) and iPhones. Most of Windows Phones are also able to run VR apps.
Ostron Cardboard works by placing your phone at the optimal distance away from the lenses. Then, by using compatible apps, the lenses create a 3D effect when held up to your eyes. You can even move your head around, and the images will respond as if you’re in the same place as what’s displayed on your screen. It was like i suddenly felt a 3D world around me. Ostron Cardboard is a fun, inexpensive way to turn nearly any Android phone or iPhone into a virtual reality viewer, allowing nearly anyone to get in on the fun.
The magnet or rather the magnets (one on the inside and one on the outside) were intended as an input for your phone. If you pull the outside magnet down, the magnetic field changes and your magnetic sensor recognizes this as a click. So far so good. However, every smartphone has its magnetic sensor at different positions.
