First of, I'd like to say I'm new to posting on here so I'm sorry if I've posted in the wrong place or something.

Anyway, we all know about the Oculus rift and some of you might have heard about the Newest version of it using Samsungs amoled screens? Well it's got me thinking.. "what's stopping me from turning my Galaxy note 2 into a an Oculus?" The answer to that is software, I know Google has developed Cardboard which by all means is a great "parody" of the Oculus but for time being that's all it is. What I would like to do is have an app like SplashTop's remote desktop app (which allows you to view your pc monitor from your phone or tablet via wifi) but with stereoscopic view and the ability to control the mouse using the accelerometer, Then theoretically anyone could run the app, mount the device onto something resembling Google Cardboard/Oculus Rift and essentially have a wireless VR Headset ready to play all their favourite games on pc with their mobile device.

Now if I knew anything about developing app and what not, I would probably already be in some kind of production but unfortunately I don't.. So if anyone feels inspired by this post or knows about someone who's had the same idea and has actually done something about it please let me know! I seriously can't be the only one thinking about this?

You probably looking for this app:

I use it for almost 4 months. and it work really good with my xperia.

Its need some serious power, especially CPU, but even with my laptop with dual core it can run games like Half-Life 2 really good.
Use only USB, not wireless conenction, and before you use your phone as a VR goggles, close ALL apps and put it to flight mode. Why? Because VR really need some serious power to run smooth.
Even if its not Oculus Quality with USB connection and clean phone ram, you can get smooth experience.

Its also gonna take some time to configure it but I can assure you that I finished whole Doom 3 and Half-life 2 using this app and my phone and it was amazing... annoying sometimes, but amazing.

Its not good with really quick action games, but when you get used to it, and you finally get how to move your head, you can play and use any app with it.
