Class Curriculum:

How do I power down/up the device?

Your headset receives power from the phone and does not have to be powered on. For Samsung S8 and S8+, the power button is on the right hand side of the phone with no other buttons.

How do I properly charge the device?

There is a USB-C plug on the bottom, right hand side of the headset.


How do I connect Wifi?

  1. From the Home screen, swipe up on an empty spot to open the Apps tray.

  2. Tap Settings > Connections.

  3. Tap Wi-Fi.

  4. If necessary, tap the Wi-Fi switch to ON.

  5. A list of networks populates.

  6. Tap the MORE to add a Wi-Fi network that does not display.

  7. Tap the desired Wi-Fi network you want to connect to.

  8. If necessary, enter the password.

  9. Tap Connect.

How do I put my Gear VR together and what are all these parts called?

There are three main parts to Cyber Eyez Gear VR:

  1. Samsung Smartphone

  2. Oculus Gear Virtual Reality Headset

  3. Cyber Eyez application

To assemble your headset, please take the following steps:

  1. Orient the headset so that the headset is looking toward you and the straps are going away from you with focus wheel on the top.

  2. Make sure the black clip on the right is all the way right and not “snapped” into place

  3. Make sure the gray clip on the left side is lifted up and ready to receive your phone. If you have an S8 or smaller the phone, make sure the clip is in the “B” position!
    Important note: If your phone uses micro USB rather than USB-C you can swap the adapter on the headset by switching the adapter to unlock, removing it, and replacing it with the micro USB version.

  4. Orient your phone so that the USB charging plug lines up with the gray clip on the left side with the screen facing the headset and the camera facing you

  5. Press the phone into place in the left clip lining up the USB charging port on the phone and the USB plug on the headset ensuring a snug fit on the USB plug.

  6. Push the phone toward the headset so it lays flat. The clip on the right will “snap” into place and hold the phone.

How do I open Cyber Eyez?

Cyber Eyez is always running in the background on your phone. When you reboot or take it out of the headset, after a few seconds you should hear your device say, “Cyber Eyez ready for headset docking.” All you need to do is put your phone in your headset to start Cyber Eyez. Alternatively, you can open it like any other app by tapping the Cyber Eyez icon on your phone. It is spelled “Cyber Eyes” on Android devices to enable you to use Google Assistant as well. Just say, “Ok Google, open Cyber Eyes” and it will launch automatically.

Name the swipe pad and the up and down swipe actions.

There is a swipe pad on the right hand side of the device beneath two small buttons. DON’T TOUCH THE BUTTONS! We don’t use the buttons or any functions in Cyber Eyez, however if you press them they will take you to the Oculus home screen. In Cyber Eyez, we swipe up (from the floor to the ceiling) or down (from the ceiling to the floor) to change modes. You can access all modes by swiping up or down as the list repeats in either direction.

Practice swipe up and down navigation.

During this time, allow the students to practice swiping up and down on the swipe pad. Some will press too hard, some too soft. Some will swipe in diagonals that may be registered as forward and back swipes.

Name the swipe pad and the forward and back swipe actions.

To zoom in, zoom out or change options in settings modes we swipe forward (from your ear toward your eyeball) or backward (from your eyeball toward your ear). Depending on which mode you are in, swiping forward and back will do different things. Swiping forward and backward in reading, object, color and barcode modes will zoom in and zoom out. Swiping forward in Adjust brightness will increase brightness.

Practice swipe forward and back navigation.

During this time allow the students to practice all the different ways to navigate Cyber Eyez and to adjust settings, zoom in and out, combine different settings and zoom levels.

How do I take a picture in Cyber Eyez?

Take a picture by long tapping on the swipe pad. You will hear a camera shutter click sound when the picture is taken. If you’re having trouble, try lifting your finger off the swipe pad and try again.

Move Display

To adjust for your vision, Cyber Eyez has the ability to move the entire virtual movie screen in front of your eyes. If you have better peripheral vision than central, try going to “Move Display Left or Right Mode” and swipe forward or backward to move the entire display in either direction. So if you have vision in your lower right peripheral for example, go to Move Display Left or Right, swipe forward to move the screen to the right. Then swipe down to Move Display Up or Down and swipe backward to move the screen down. You can also move the screen closer or farther away from your eye. The ultimate goal is to try and see all 4 corners of the movie screen if possible.

Practice zooming and capturing

Have the students go into Google Offline Text Reader, Microsoft Online Text Reader, Barcode mode, color assistant or mood ring mode and practice zooming and taking pictures.

Q&A

15 minute questions and answer sessions at the end of the training to answer any of your Cyber Eyez basics questions.
