Hi i would like to ask you if you know about a way how to use Trinus VR with cable using gear VR . I could disable booting oculus app with Package Disabler Pro , but i'm not sure if i could pair pc and cellphone with cable since it's through gear VR . Anyone knows if it works ?

  • I don't think it's possible, because Gear VR isn't just the lens system, it also has better sensors.

My friend has a Gear VR headset and I have wanted to do this for a while. I eventually just made it myself with google cardboard.

Dan Hulme has a good point. The gear VR does incorporate multiple other sensors the communicate with the phone. HOWEVER, the phones compatible immediately with Gear VR all have a gyroscope in them so you don't really need the extra sensors!

You should be able to use the Trinus VR app but with only the built in gyro, it might drift or lag a tad bit...

Hope this helps!


Try https://riftcat.com . It will use your phone sensors data.

    That's an interesting suggestion, but their website says they don't support Gear VR (yet), only Cardboard. They're hoping to add Gear VR support but can't promise anything.
