Virtual Reality is taking over the world! Now students can create their own VR Experiences at Capital E.
Armed with a smartphone, a Google Cardboard headset and some free software, students will create a brand new virtual world to explore. Gaze at distant mountains, see deer running by, and hear the wind rustling through the trees. We’re very much looking forward to bringing this amazing technology to you.
We will be using LG Nexus 5 Phones and Google Cardboard headsets.
After the session all your virtual worlds will be uploaded to our website ready to download to your smart phones. Please note that not all smart phones are VR compatible.
Google Cardboard headsets are available from https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/get-cardboard/ or you can make your own using these instructions: https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/manufacturers/
We use Unity3D, a free game engine. It’s also the software of choice currently for our 3D Movie Making experiences with schools, and it works great. https://unity3d.com/
We also use the Cardboard SDK available here https://vr.google.com/cardboard/developers/ and the Android SDK available here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html. Instructions to set up Unity at home can be found here: https://developers.google.com/cardboard/unity/get-started.
We are also using some extra, very cool ‘low-poly’ assets from Quantum Theory we have bought from the Unity Asset store, especially for this experience.
