VR controllers use different sensors that are also included in modern mobile phones. This opens up the possibility of using mobile phones to control virtual reality. In our work, we focus on such possibilities, the few existing solutions and their shortcomings serving as our points of depart. We designed a control system based on metaphors from other areas that were adapted to VR control with a mobile phone. We consequently proceeded to compare our system with the traditional control with keyboard and mouse. This article contains the results of this comparison and the discussion.
