Virtual Reality: What do I need?

You need four things to use Rimontgó’s Virtual Reality:

  1. Virtual Reality headset
  2. Smartphone
  3. Virtual Reality app
  4. A Virtual Reality tour link from Rimontgó

1. Virtual Reality Headset

The following headsets are supported:

We recommend the Samsung Gear VR for the best experience, but Google Cardboard works fine too.

Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Microsoft Hololens, and other ‘tethered headsets’ are not supported.

2. Smartphone

If you’re using the Samsung Gear VR, you need a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. The following models are supported:

  • Galaxy S7
  • Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy S6 Edge+
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 Edge

If you are using Google Cardboard, you need an Android smartphone.

  • More recent models with a gyroscope and screens 4 to 6 inches screens (10 to 15 cm) are supported
  • Phones a year or two older may suffer from poor frame rate, latency, double vision and other issues
  • Requires Android 4.4 (KitKat) or above
    • More recent Android versions will work better, to find your current Android version open Settings and then System > About device > Android version
  • iOS (Apple iPhone) not currently supported. Coming soon.

3. Virtual Reality App

  1. If you are using the Samsung Gear VR, open the Oculus app on your smartphone.

    If you do not have the Oculus app, insert the smartphone into the Gear VR headset and you will be prompted to download it. After this download the VR app from inside Oculus (link)
