At the same time of viewing Street View views on the monitor, it is possible to display 3D in a VR viewer.
3D viewer is based on a smartphone app that uses the Google Cardboard APIs. In this version of the API the imaginery is provided in the form of two synchronized wide-angle screens suitable for binocular vision typical of the VR viewers.

The app interrogates, via the LAN, the system's web server obtaining information about its current location (latitude, longitude, POV, speed, and gradient), obtains from the Google Cardboard services the three-dimensional spherical images of the current position and overlaps the motion information to the imaginery.
Turning the head, the smartphone gyroscope provides head direction information allowing spherical photo rotation.
The rotation of the head has no effect on the direction of movement which continues to be determined only by the handlebars angle.
The platform-indipendent app has been developed with the Cordova framework.


Returns the Focus for Makers award winner Gooble Bike.
In addition to riding on  Street View pre-defined paths simulating slopes, this new version allows you to ride anywhere on Street View choosing in real-time the crossroads by rotating the handlebar.
Also next to the usual 2D vision the new Gooble Bike allows 360° 3D viewing with a VR viewer.
