Working on VR support

As we got our new Oculus rift, we started implementing VR for Blend4Web.
Kirill is happy to work on this feature!

Very Nice!
I have a DK2 as well as the Samsung Gear VR. That would be great to try them out on Blend4Web/

We also just picked up a Samsung Gear VR, looking forward to the testing out these features.

We have some Google Cardboard devices, so we are going to support mobile VR too.

Hi @ll,
hello Kirill,

Nice to see the WebVR support in 15.12.
I would like, apart the VR support and anaglyph-mode, enquire/suggest/ask for/ also another stereoscopic viewing method:
The 'cross-eyed'-viewing method (for watching stereo images on non-mobile-display-sizes, e.g. iPad/minis),
and the parallel/wall-eyed-viewing method (for watching stereo images on small display sizes, e.g. iPhones).

This would be a very nice addtition. Quite a few people get managed to see cross-eyed or parallel-eyed stereo images, and it wouldn't require any additional 'hardware'-effort like HMDs or colored glasses to have around.

It would be nice if those viewing modes would be accessible on mobile browsers without WebVR-support (perhaps possible because no need for lens-distortion-correction, nor lens-color-aberration-correction?). Would that be possible?

Any intentions to go into that direction?

Would be happy to hear what do you think, Kirill?

Cheers, Daniel

Hi Daniel Klepel.

WebVR API provides access to any kind of virtual reality devices. Main feature of the API is access to sensor values. But there is exist Device Orientation API for mobile browsers. So there is no need WebVR API.

We are going to support VR on mobile devices without WebVR-support.

hi everyone,
i noticed this post and wondered if you could let me know what you did to make blend4web html export work using webvr on the samsung gear with my samsung s7.
I have downloaded the oculus softwear onto my phone. I also now have samsungs own internet vr.
Changed the flag in samsungs internet app to support webvr and then also installed cardboard.
However so far when I load my html file onto the phone and put it in full screen all I get is a blank black screen subdivided into two sections.
This file works perfectly when I view it without the webvr switched on and for all of about 1 second i do see something before it goes black but not sure what it is.

Any ideas you may have for possible solution to this would be much appreciated.

Kindest regards
