Google App Turns Smartphone Into VR Camera

Google released a Cardboard Camera app that turns Android phones into virtual-reality cameras.

Users hold out the phone in front of them as they move around in a circle, capturing a 360-degree photo that can be viewed when the phone is placed in Google’s Cardboard viewer, Google explained.

The VR photos present slightly different views for each eye, adding three-dimensional depth to the photos. The photos can also be viewed from all directions. The app also records sound with the photo.

“With Cardboard Camera, anyone can create their own VR experience,” Google said.
