    Recieved my loop vr today! I was reading in the forums that many people complaining about the plastic hitting the nose and cant use them more than a minut or so, i really have to say thats absolutlty true ! That damn hurts , i noticed when i have a small head that i can get the fingers in from the side of my head because the loop vr is so wide so the soft part only touches my head on the forehead, just added some soft stuff to the edges and whala its comfortable, feels really good and dosent hurt my nose, just a little tip if someone have the same issue , it dosent look very professional but works ( i used 2 sided tape to add this )

    Yes and it works really well.
    I took out the four screws on the inside and outside of the headset to remove the casing and taped a magnet to the inside of the case and put it back together. The magnet has to be placed so it is close the the magnetometer which is near the headphone jack of the OnePlus 2.
    To interact with it I added another magnet on the outside which, just like the normal cardboard, has to be flicked to be interpreted as button press.

    To install a magnet switch on the Loop VR I removed the four screws inside and the four screws on the front.
    Be careful not to drop the screws on the lenses when unscrewing the front.

    The headset then comes apart pretty easily.

    I found a magnet which fits inside. There seems to be a lot of space for odd sized magnets.

    I secured it with some tape and made sure that it was strong enough to hold the other magnet outside that is used as the switch.

    I put it all back together and there you go! The phone has to be placed so the magnet is next to the headphone jack as this is where the magnetometer of the OnePlus 2 is (Most smartphones has it near the top). To control a cardboard app just flick the outside magnet and it registers as a button press.

    I can't get mine to work without using a magnet. I read you should be able to hold your stare, where the circle is on the screen, and it should register as a selection but that didn't work for me

    Updated OP with latest QR code that's working amazing. No blurry vision it auto focuses to your video in a second and very good quality

    It will pair up as VRG-10900 viewer and it is a QR code made by ANTVR. Give it a try.

    I'm disappointing with the shipping. I payed $16 on a "free" product, and the tracking info I'm getting is about as useful as a 3-year-olds worst finger painting.

    OK - since nothing worked i went and fine calibrated and made one myself:
    What it's set at:
    400 ppi
    5'5" screen
    oneplusone (testing)
    center aligned (phone in viewer)

    IF you notice slight blurriness - adjust the lenses distance (originally calibrated with maximum distance they can have).

    for some control - if you have a spare phone:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tournesol.tabletremote
    Tho i haven't figured out the screen click.
    There is also BT controller for joystick.
