Looking Glass Bridge, Looking Glass Studio, and some demo applications are already installed and ready to use on computers or laptops purchased directly from Looking Glass Factory.

Some applications are controllable via the Leap Motion hand tracking hardware (included). To use these features, please download and install the V5 (Gemini) version of the Desktop SDK.

Test your Setup

This simple test can be run to ensure that hardware is connected, and software is installed and configured:
When the above button is pressed, your Looking Glass 16" should show a 3D image of the Looking Glass Logo. To close this image, move your mouse over and click anywhere on the image.
If it appears with diagonal lines, there is an error loading the calibration data. Please retry the setup steps above to ensure it is properly configured, double check that all cables are plugged in and that your monitor settings are correct.
If diagonal lines stretch across the image, there is an error loading the calibration data. Please retry the setup steps above to ensure it is properly configured and double check that all cables are plugged in and that your monitor settings are correct.

Common Troubleshooting Issues

Issue
Solution
If you notice that some media in Looking Glass Studio is running at a slower frame rate
Ensure that the graphics card is targeting all the applications that you've installed including the web browser you're using (we recommend Chrome). For a detailed breakdown of how to set this for your PC, follow this guide here. If you are running the quilts off of Looking Glass Studio, ensure that Looking Glass Studio is using the external GPU and not the integrated processor.
