Thread: Gyroscope for 3GS

  1. #1
    Default Gyroscope 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?

    I think this is an awesome idea! Although I don't need it, it would be an amazing tool for the community!
