Since all three finalists used TensorFlow in their plug-ins, I’ve collected 5 TensorFlow articles that can help other people get TensorFlow running inside of the THETA V.


As you port other Android applications to the THETA V, this article on the THETA pluginlibrary lifecycle may also be useful.

Congratulations on winning!

I added Step 4, which covers the pluginlibrary modification.

As the objects are distorted on the edge of the equirectangular image, you may want to put the camera at an angle and get more of the shot from the lens that is opposite the shutter button.

Did you use this dataset?

I read the article below, but have not tried it.
