Testing VR with Google Cardboard before my trip

October 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Petit Jean Falls This waterfall is located in Petit Jean State Park Morrilton, Arkansas. It is a 1.1 mile hike to get to the base of the falls or your can drive by road at the top. Hikers can traverse the rocks around the pool and climb up behind the falls as the couple has done in this photo.

This is an example of VR (Virtual Reality) on an inexpensive cardboard device.  I am going to help you experience visual/sound on my trip.  First, you will need Google Cardboard Glasses which I showed you in my LIVE FB video.  Go to Amazon and search "Google Cardboard Glasses" and you will find an array of glasses to choose from.  Order a pair.  They are cheap ($7 range) and if you are a Prime Member you can get them in a day.  You will next need to download the Google Cardboard app and Google Camera from the Google Play Store or the IPhone App store.  At this point you may want to go to Google and search "How to use Google Cardboard" or click here.  Watch how-to and setup/use to make your own VR files.  Once you have installed the apps you "click" on the files I post throughout my trip.

You can view the file on your device that the app is installed on after you insert into Google Cardboard Googles.  Now you and see and hear the experience.    You can only "see/hear" what you have created with your phone or pad using a Google Cardboard device.

For future reference I will post the links to this blog on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and refer back to this  blog post on how to get started.  If you like this blog format you may want to join the RSS feed to be notified when new material appears.  Once you get the hang of the app and the Google Glasses you can create your own for family and friends.  Use your Android Phone/IPhone/IPad to access my start up demo file  here which I captured at Petit Jean Falls in Arkansas.  The finished photo above was created from this trip.  As you can see from the VR it was a hectic day with lots of people and noise.
