Description

This project idea is inspired by the VR game Beat saber. I was curious to see if I can do a similar game like that but with smartphone as the controller. I initially thought I will be able to pair with bluetooth, unfortunately bluetooth support is not available in browser yet. So I created a small nodeJS server and the phone sends its sensor data via websockets to the desktop browser or wherever you have the game running.

Instructions

This only runs in Chrome and an Android device is needed. And make sure you are going to the HTTPS webpage both on desktop and smartphone. Go to the app and follow the instructions accordingly.
