On my cyberdeck, the TFT screen is tiny (3.5", I think). While this is conveniently portable, it can be hard to do anything complex on.
I figured that I had an old android smartphone lying around, and I had a smartphone VR headset as well.
What I want to do is create a head-mounted display for the cyberdeck, hopefully allowing me to emulate a larger monitor in a more compact space. And, ya know, it fits the cyberpunk theme.
1) Use android phone in headset to emulate a larger screen for Raspberry Pi
2) Use a wired connection between the pi and the headset
Possible solutions and resources:
VR VNC- An android app that is supposed to allow you to VNC into a display, and splits the display to render in VR
Android Device as Screen for rPi via USB & VNC- The below link has a guide to using an android device as a screen via a wired USB connection. They weren't attempting VR, though, but this should be at least part of the solution.
I've attempted some work with VNCs on the Pi to be viewed on the phone. This has worked, but only as a cloned display, not in VR.
I haven't been able to make VR VNC work with the VNC programs tightvncserver (which I was later told has security issues anyway) or Real VNC. Also, it appears that VR VNC uses the motion sensors on the phone, which are broken on my old phone. I was hoping for just a screen projected to be the same in front of me regardless of viewing angle.
Commentary and suggestions are welcome.
