In this part, we would like to introduce the struggle during the process of making this app.

We’ve already written in the previous blog written in Japanese about the development AR and VR since 2014.

The target phone of Daydream should be more advance than that of Cardboard so we expect to develop richer content.
For example, observing the starry sky at the metropolis or observing the starry sky with Aurora Borealis or Aurora Australis.

Eventually we came to the conclusion that developing richer content isn’t feasible yet because of its mobile spec, so this brainchild is still a dream. we just made two backgounds in replace of our former original plan.

Comparing the Cardboard’s background and Daydream’s background, the cardboard version is more simple while the graphics of the other one is more real life-like, and you can easily be more immersed into the virtual reality.

In addition, Daydream View can use a controller and it also supports the Users Interface. You can also instinctively input rather than the Cardboard.
