How to use Bridge for the first time?
0- You need an iPhone (6,6S, 7,8)
1- Charge the Structure Sensor and attach the 3D scanner with the headset (Like what is shown below)
2- While charging, download two Apps
1- BRIDGET: A mixed reality robot
This one is the main App that we would actually use to experience Mix Reality.
2- Structure Sensor Calibrator
This one is an assistant App that we need to calibrate 3D scanner in order to let iPhone and 3D scanner can work together. (Use this one before the main App)
3- Download a calibration calibrator checkerboard
4- Now open the Structure Sensor App and follow the instruction.
5- Display the calibrator checkerboard to full-screen and calibrate by following the instruction.
6- After calibration, open the App BRIDGET and plug the lightning cable into iPhone (Make sure your phone is in Do-Not-Disturb mode and has enough juice. Once a notification pops out or a low battery warning is shown on the iPhone’s screen, users have to reopen the App and start again.)
Then press “trigger” to launch the App
7- Scan your surrounding environment by moving the headset
Now you can immerse yourself in the environment that you just scanned and interact with Bridge robot! Look at him to active him and select interactive activities by pulling the trigger.
8- Enjoy your Mix Reality experience.
