Show HN: Turn your smartphone into a 3D controller with only a web app (github.com)
3 points by konaraddio 7 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 1 comment

I built a web app that turns your smartphone into a 3D controller (think Wii remote). No need to install a mobile or desktop app.

Just visit https://web-riimote.herokuapp.com on a smartphone (it'll be your controller) and a laptop/desktop (it'll be your display). Works best in Chrome.

Here's a video showing it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2r1-lR6Xq8 .

This project was inspired by the 2016 Android Experiments Winner (https://experiments.withgoogle.com/3d-controller). The 2016 Android Experiments winner turns your smartphone into a 3D controller using Chromecast and an Android app. But `web-riimote` demonstrates that it's possible to do the same with only a web app.

Built with Vue.js and Node.js
