Cardboard VR, screen too big

    I was very excited to purchase a cardboard vr kit until I received it and realised the Oneplus One screen puts the two images two far apart to create a 3D effect.

    Does anyone know of an app that can make the cardboard app run on a specific part of the screen so that the pictures can be the right distance away from each other or have another fix?

    Edit: The fix to this is just bringing the pictures closer with your eyes.

    Curious too about it!
    I want a cardboard box but I'm not sure if it's going to work or not.

    After experimenting with it I found that the problem is convincing your eyes that the two pictures are part of an actual 3D environment. To do that you basically have to bring the two pictures closer with your eyes. After that it's pretty cool. And you only have to do that for the official cardboard app, other apps like roller coaster simulators that place you in an actual 3D world convincing your eyes is not a problem. The very sides of the screen are be cut off a little, but that doesn't affect the experience at all in my opinion.

    Hmm... make your own cardboard box? That's always an option. I'm afraid I don't know of any app that can change your display area

    I do not have this problem, at all.

    It doesn't fit the nicest in my cardboard but it works just fine.

    But isn't the camera too close to the upper edge (left border of the cardboard) to avoid to be covered with the environment? (btw is it necessary to enjoy any of the vr app?)

    With the original cutout on the cardboard, it'll cover the OPO's camera. But you can easily cut a hole for the camera yourself.

    I haven't tried it myself but with XPOSED Framework Module XFloatingWindow you should be able to make any app run in a floating halo of the right size.

    Or maybe play with the app density in PA (do they still have that feature?).

    I'm using CM11 and although having a cardboard, I haven't tried placing the OPO there because my S4 slide out of there and luckily I managed to grab it in mid air.

    Hmm, I have'nt find any to buy. But you can ask someone with a 3d printer if they can make one for you. Only thing you need to buy is 2 lences. 1.5" and about 7 x magnifier.
