Free camera movement in Cardboard VR?



I usually use the sketchfab website or app to view models in VR on my Smartphone. However, It’s a bit upsetting to find you can only teleport around objects and look at them from the same consistent eye level. Is there any way/feature to let me control the camera more freely and move it around similar to fps or orbit mode?

Hi, how would you control the camera movement from within a Cardboard headset?

Have you seen an example of this working well with Cardboard?

The closest I can think of is probably Google Earth where it just simply moves forward, toggled by tapping on the screen. Moving around a scene, rather than teleporting, is a pretty uncomfortable experience on most Cardboard devices.


For the most part I’m just looking for a way to change the eye level of the viewer so you can look at the model from a lower or higher angle. (And this is NOT the same thing as just resizing/rescaling the model itself)

Aleahy had a good point - how would this work? Cardboards only have one button.


Well for now, all I really want is some way to change the eye/floor level of the viewer, like with some kind of settings option/menu.
