To work with its VR headsets, Samsung has launched Relumino, a Gear VR app that uses augmented reality to compensate for vision problems. Relumino can magnify or minimize images, adjust brightness and sharpness, highlight objects with an outline, invert colours when reading text and add a colour filter to the screen. It can also remap your field of view to enhance a user’s peripheral field if they have tunnel vision, and even assist people with scotoma by helping them to see what is obstructed by their blind spot. Samsung knows that it would be awkward to walk around wearing a VR headset all the time, so the current app is reserved for special situations. However, the Relumino team is hoping to eventually develop glasses-like headwear that achieves similar results, without looking as ridiculous. The app is compatible with newer models of Galaxy smartphones and can be downloaded for free in the Oculus store.
