Google keeps on introducing new apps by trying various experiments. It is giving itself the choice to experiment with strange little apps that boast some fascinating technologies but don’t actually have any other actual purpose.
Google’s Sprayscape App Lets You Capture Wild VR Photos
The most recent of these experimental projects is Sprayscape. Google’s Sprayscape App Lets You Capture Wild VR Photos. It is a VR camera app for Android that is perhaps not rather what you think when you read the words “VR camera app.”
Not like similar apps, counting Google’s own Cardboard Camera, Sprayscape doesn’t merely capture a 360-degree sphere.
“Just point your phone and tap the screen to spray faces, places, or anything else onto your canvas.”
This is how Google describes it.
First when you try the app, it’s not immediately clear that you shouldn’t keep your finger on the screen as you move around. All that it will give is a very blurred picture. It’s all a bit strange, but unusually fun, too.
As soon as you’ve taken your 360-degree photo collage, you can share your photos with the rest of the world with the help of a link.
The app uses the Cardboard SDK to read gyroscope data and the NatCam Unity plugin to regulate the camera. Google has issued the app’s code on GitHub. So if you want to create a related app, you can use Google’s code to see how it’s done.
If android users want to give it a go, they can download the app here.
