This application allows the wearer of a Google Cardboard headset to explore a 3D stereoscopic world.

It’s perhaps most suited to users who have a Google Cardboard headset but have a device with a compass but no gyroscope. The Moto G for example.

While the app utilises the Cardboard headset, it does not use the Cardboard API and does utilise the device’s compass for orientation purposes, rather than the gyroscope. This means that the magnet in the Cardboard headset will likely need to be removed, since it can affect the device’s compass from several centimetres away. In this app, you tap the device or nod your head, instead of flicking that magnet.

Requires: Google Cardboard headset (minus the magnet), accelerometer (most Android devices), compass.
