Google has published an entry in its blog announcing the launch of what they have called “VR viewer” whose content can be embedded in web pages by developers. At the same time he has also announced the official launch of your Cardboard SDK for iOS, which will allow iOS developers to embed Virtual Reality (VR) content in their own applications when viewing them using the Google accessory.
The official launch of the Cardboard SDK for iOS confirms the intention of the company now part of Alphabet to bring Virtual Reality to all platforms. They have released the Carboard SDK as a Cocoapod file, which will ensure that developers will always be using the most up-to-date code. In addition, it also includes several tools that will help create software for Virtual reality, including 3D calibration, head movement tracking and spatial audio.
Virtual Reality will arrive to iOS by the hand of Cardboard
In the blog post published by Google announcing these releases we can read that “For developers, having immersion elements in their own applications and web pages can be the difference between ‘meh’ (mediocrity) And the magic That is why we present the VR viewer – a quick and easy way to embed immersion content on the web, iOS and Android".
The Google Cardboard SDK is now available for iOS (from HERE) and Android (from HERE), while the VR viewer and the content that can be embedded in the web pages is available from the Google GitHub (from HERE). What remains to be seen is how long it takes for developers to create worthwhile applications. Personally, I am not seduced by the idea of putting this type of device close to my face but, as I always say, every option that does not subtract on the other hand is welcome.
