Experience positional tracking in mobile VR!


NOTE: The S8 is the only GearVR compatible phone that is officially supported by ARCore. However, I have applied a patch that should make it work for S8+ as well. REQUIRES ARCORE SERVICE. Download and install here: https://github.com/google-ar/arcore-android-sdk/releases/download/sdk-preview/arcore-preview.apk or google "arcore service apk" This is a simple scene that you can walk around in and experience positional tracking. It utilizes Google's ARCore service. The tracking isn't perfect and you will likely experience hiccups. Results are worst at the beginning and get better after ARCore has scanned the nearby environment. You can move your virtual feet in game via swiping forward/backward on the touchpad.

S8+ now unofficially supported

What is SideloadVR?

SideloadVR builds custom GearVR .apks that include the user's signature file. This means that developers can share their ideas without going through Oculus Home and the global signing process.

SideloadVR is built on the idea of an open system, where developers can freely share their content with an extended tester user base.

If you are a developer and want to be included in SideloadVR, please fill out this form and we will get back to you.

Who is VR Bits?

VR Bits is creating immersive Virtual Reality content in cooperation with VR industry leaders such as Oculus VR, Sony, Samsung and Google. We love Virtual Reality and want developers to be able to share their ideas freely.
