VRTK GearVR Test

Warning! This repository is no longer maintained.

Details below refer to an old version of VRTK (3.3.0-alpha branch, January 2018).

This is a repository for testing Virtual Reality Toolkit (VRTK) on GearVR (see VRTK description below, in the next section).

This is a totally separate repository and isn’t representative of any work currently being carried out on VRTK.

Everything here works with the GearVR D-Pad only, it is designed just to enable a gaze-based interaction without a gamepad or controller. If using a controller you probably don’t need this: the GearVR controller can work with VRTK (see this video by @thestonefox https://github.com/thestonefox [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ma2AetALN_k]), it is mapped on Touchpad.

Minimum Unity version is 5.5.4.

Oculus package must be added installing OculusUtilities.

You can find instructions here.

In Assets\VRTK_GearVR_Test here are 5 scenes to be tested with GearVR:

  • template basic scene (000_Template_BasicScene_GearVR)
  • object touching and grabbing (005_Controller_BasicObjectGrabbing_GearVR)
  • interaction with Unity UI (034_Controls_InteractingWithUnityUI_GearVR)
  • controlling movements with GearVR D-Pad (015_Controller_TouchpadAxisControl_GearVR)
  • teleport (044_CameraRig_RestrictedTeleportZones_GearVR)

Note: Before building on your Android device, you must copy special OSIG file additions (oculussig_*) to Assets/Plugins/Android/Assets/

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have an issue or question then check the FAQ.md document to see if your query has already been answered.

Getting Started

VRTK offers a VR Simulator that works without any third party SDK, but VR device support requires a supported VR SDK to be imported into the Unity project.

  • Download or clone this repository.
  • Open the folder in Unity to load the project.
  • Have a look at the included example scenes.

The example scenes support all the VRTK supported VR SDKs. To make use of VR devices (besides the included VR Simulator) import the needed third party VR SDK into the project.

For further information about setting up a specific SDK and using VRTK in your own project, check out the GETTING_STARTED.md document.

What’s In The Box

VRTK is a collection of useful scripts and concepts to aid building VR solutions rapidly and easily in Unity3d 5+.

It covers a number of common solutions such as:

  • Locomotion within virtual space.
  • Interactions like touching, grabbing and using objects
  • Interacting with Unity3d UI elements through pointers or touch.
  • Body physics within virtual space.
  • 2D and 3D controls like buttons, levers, doors, drawers, etc.
  • And much more…


A collection of example scenes have been created to aid with understanding the different aspects of VRTK.

A list of the examples can be viewed in Examples/README.md which includes an up to date list of examples showcasing the features of VRTK.

The example scenes support all the VRTK supported VR SDKs. To make use of VR devices (besides the included VR Simulator) import the needed third party VR SDK into the project.
