Issue With VR Zoom In in Samsung Galaxy s7 (Fix)

I recently downloaded the Cardboard Camera app on my Samsung Galaxy s7 smartphone. However, when I tried to look at the photos in VR mode I noticed that the images were somehow zoomed in giving me a double vision effect.


In the beginning I wasn’t sure if the issue was the app or the phone. It turned out it was the screen resolution on my phone.

Here is what I did to fix the issue:

1.      Go to Apps
2.      Open Settings
3.      Tap on Display
4.      Tap on Screen resolution
5.      Change the screen resolution to WQHD (2560-1440)
6.      Open your photo in VR mode again.

After going through those steps, I was finally able to see the image correctly in VR mode. I hope this helps.

VR Worlds' Scavengers Odyssey Gave Me Motion Sickness

Recently I had my first encounter with motion sickness while playing VR Worlds' Scavengers Odyssey, a game included with the PlayStation VR. Believe me, it was not nice.
Everything started at the second level of the game, where you are in outer space jumping from one asteroid to the other and walking (some times vertically) while shooting aliens. Suddenly, I started having the feeling of being very tired and a bit uncomfortable, but I thought I could stop after getting to the next level instead of stopping right away, that was a mistake.
A few minutes later after reaching level 3, I turned off the PlayStation, something wasn’t right. I was sweating a lot and I was starting to get an upset stomach. Being my first experience with VR motion sickness, I wasn’t sure about what I had. My first thought was that this was caused by something I ate. I had food poisoning in the past and it felt just like that. I went to the bathroom and sat down, I wasn’t sure if I was going to throw up or …
