A Spreadsheet of Phones That Do and Don't Support Google Expeditions

Yesterday, I answered an email from a participant in my recent Intro to VR & AR webinar. She was having trouble getting Google Expeditions to work on one of her phones. I did a little research and found that the phone she was trying to use Expeditions on didn't have a gyroscope. The absence of a gyroscope made Expeditions not work as expected. I was able to discover that information with the help of Andrew Caffrey's spreadsheet of devices that do and don't support Google Expeditions.

Andrew Caffrey's site has other good information for teachers who are interested in learning more about Google Expeditions including directions for making your own Google Cardboard viewer.

On a related note, Roman UrsuHack offers the following video that provides an overview of making your own VR viewer.


The template that Roman UrsuHack follows in the video can be found here (link opens a PDF).
