Profiling your Stereoscope

Use the Viewer Profile Generator to define your device's key parameters. Add the QR code to your viewer so every Cardboard app will automatically adapt to your viewer. You will need PC with which you will change parameters while looking at the calibration image on the smartphone.

If you smartphone doesn't support WebGL technology and cannot run Google Profile Generator, there are few options. For example VR Calibration for Cardboard on Android. Changes made with this tool are NOT saved anywhere and will NOT affect your smartphone's Cardboard profile directly. Once you are happy with the VR viewer parameters please visit the official Cardboard profile generator page to create a new VR viewer profile based on your discovered parameters.
