Thunkable for Android ❤
The Gyroscope is a sensor that utilizes the gravity of the earth to indicate its orientation. It consists of a freely-rotating disk mounted onto the center of larger wheels.
The Gyroscope sensor on a phone has become a central component in virtual and augmented reality apps because of its ability to detect how much the phone is being tilted, mostly to provide a smooth experience to a user turning her head.
The sample app Thunkable Cardboard VR uses a Gyroscope to create a virtual reality drawing app for Google Cardboard
Detect Phone's Angular Velocity
|Event / Property||Description|
|Available||Indicates whether the gyroscope is present on the device|
|Gyroscope Changed (xAngularVelocity, yAngularVelocity, zAngularVelocity, timestamp (nanoseconds))||Indicates that the gyroscope sensor data has changed. The timestamp parameter is the time in nanoseconds at which the event occurred|
|X Angular Velocity||The angular velocity around the X axis, in degrees per second|
|Y Angular Velocity||The angular velocity around the Y axis, in degrees per second|
|Z Angular Velocity||The angular velocity around the Z axis, in degrees per second|
|Enabled||If 'true', the gyroscope sensor is enabled|
