To hit the ground running with WebVR. I started an experiment to capture Hackerspace Phnom Penh using Google Cardboard camera app and display it using A-Frame framework. The Google Cardboard camera photosphere is not supported by A-Frame. But the positive responses to my query encouraged me to try an hack using A-Frame Panorama component.
Is it possible to embed Google cardboard camera image capture in a @aframevr powered site?— Arky (@playingwithsid) December 17, 2015
And it works. Almost I had to tweak the scale setting a bit to try get the perspective right but it does work. The ideal solution is to create a A-Frame custom component, that I leave it for more skilled people.
The markup needed for this demo is simple, you can achieve this with one line.
<a-scene> <a-sky src="img/hackerspace.vr.jpg" radius="2400" scale="2 1 2"> </a-sky> </a-scene>
