      Can you show me an example of what you really expect on “mixed reality” tutorial?

    • John

      Thanks for your reply, I really need a tutorial on how to use vuforia and cardboard SDK.

      The app would scan the image target to track the AR world, and the user would be giving a button that when looked at will teleport the user into the VR world and Vice verser. just like the vuforia sample.

      would be expecting the tutorial soon.

    I have a one question.
    I tried this with two different object and tried on android device. The issue is my both objects are visualize from starting.. Buttons didnt work…

      Did you put virtual buttons on textured tracking object? If not, I suggest to make it so. Don’t put virtual buttons on plane without any textures. I hope that helps.

  5. Hrishikesh

    But i received at the time of program run. It couldnt find the path of ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll to Unzip the file. I couldn’t understood. I am not programming guy…

      Hello, I would re-watch closely the video. Most likely you forgot to put your model in ImageTarget? Maybe some errors shows up?

  7. Siddhant Patil

      I believe it was one time error? no? and happens from time to time?

    I know this might a stupid question but I noticed when Opening your Project that I downloaded In this site unity immediately open the “Game” tab and the “Scene” tab is missing I was wandering on how did you do that. Thank you so much on this tutorial reaLly learned a Lot on this experience.

    I downloaded the script file and loaded it directly in my scene. It didn’t work. Both the buttons and models appear as soon as i enter the play mode.

    Later i also tried changing the names of buttons and models according to what I have named them on my scene. It now shows shows me an error to fix the compiler.

    Could you please guide what all attributes are to be changed before loading the script.
