I'm trying to help a friend out with the tech portion of an art project for a display.
He's going to have a cheapo vr headset with a phone and a projector projecting what the wearer is seeing.
So we need a cheap phone that supports gyroscopes for the VR which wasn't too hard to find but we tried several and none of them supported HDMI out. I even learned none of my Google phones do it which was surprising.
The third need is we want to be able to charge it while using that HDMI out. I figured a basic C-splitter would be fine, they're popular now. However several seem to say they don't support charging. I thought wireless charging might be a good way to avoid that issue but a lot of those phones are pricey. We were looking at refurbs online and hoping to keep it under $200.
Anyone know of a phone that might fit our needs? Or a good USB-C hub that might charge?
