    Hi all,

    I’m developing an app using Unity and the trinusLib. The server application is meant to run on a Windows PC. As client hardware I have a Galaxy Note 8 mounted to a Samsung GearVR Heaset (the Oculus service is deactivated such that the Trinus stream is visible).
    Now I would like to use the controller of the Samsung GearVR as input source for the application.

    1. The controller is communicating via Bluetooth: is it the best way to couple it directly to the computer?
    2. How do I access the controller’s sensor data and buttons in my server application?
    3a. Does Trinus itself have a feature to achieve this; if not is there a plan to add it?
    3b. If not, does anyone know, how to achieve this using other software?

    So far I found these resources, but would be glad to have a more standard, less hacky way:

    Thank you,

    PS: does somebody maybe know a system that does serverside rendering and supports the above mentioned features?

    Hi, Trinus does not support Gear VR controllers atm. It might in the future but not through the Unity library
