Cardboard Home

icon_fullresRecently, I started work on a new app for Android called Cardboard Home. Cardboard Home is an Android launcher designed for use with the Google Cardboard virtual reality headset. Cardboard Home is intended to replace a regular launcher when the user places their device inside a Google Cardboard viewer. Unlike a regular launcher, Cardboard Home uses side by side 3D to display a launcher interface that is useable while inside Google Cardboard. It may be a while before Cardboard Home hits the Play Store though, as I can’t get the gyroscope, magnetic buttons, and NFC to work properly because I don’t have a device to test those features with. Hopefully, I will be receiving my Oneplus One later this week, which will allow me to get these features working quickly.

Cardboard Home is open source software, hosted on Github, under the GPL v2 license
