Thread: Gyroscope for 3GS
11-06-2010, 01:45 PM #1Gyroscope for 3GS
This probably could be made if a developer could help with this. I don't need it as I have an ip4, but for the community
Anyway, we could use the compass to detect oriantation of the device like the gyro. I would not be extremely accurate like a real gyro, but it is something. Would be useful for games like sandstorm, nova, and gun range because your view would still go according to how you move.
Here is a video of an app called star walk, that makes this idea real:
(sorry for dog and my random mumbling)
It is not super accurate but it works. Could this maybe made into a mobile substrate add on that tricks the app into allowing an emulated gyro using input from the compass?
What do you guys think?

Thanks. I don't need it either, but I do think it would be really cool to make.
