README

3D compass is a sample Android application showing how to display a
dynamically-updated 3D arrow with OpenGL that takes its direction from
the orientation sensor, composited on top of a live camera preview
image. The source code includes the following
utility classes:
  * CameraUseful: some routines for managing the camera and decoding
    image data
  * GeomBuilder: basic management of 3D object geometry and rendering
  * Lathe: uses GeomBuilder to construct objects with rotational symmetry
  * Compass: how to use the orientation sensor data to draw a 3D
    compass arrow

Note that the compass direction is sometimes inaccurate--at least, on
my HTC Desire it is. However, turning the phone this way and that will
often nudge it back into a sensible reading.
