Given I’m currently learning to develop in Unity I thought I’d share a few tips I pick up along the way to becoming proficient with it. When creating a scene in Unity you’ll work with loads of different GameObjects. Your virtual world is built out of them (Floors, walls, trees everything) and you’ll be manipulating […]
We’ve seen some amazing stuff already with ARkit but this new demo really takes the cake. Just amazing tech. Hats off to Nedd for this one. So fancy! Source: madewithARkit.com
One of the problems with discussion of emerging technologies is terminology, or more importantly the lack of clearly defined terminology. At the moment this space has a big issue with overlapping, confusing terms that consumers will likely never fully understand. It doesn’t help that the industry itself isn’t exactly using the terms consistently either. The […]
When thinking of VR/AR/MR it’s easy for your mind to leap to games. Games are the obvious low hanging fruit of the industry, especially given all this stuff tends to be built in game engines like Unity and Unreal. But there’s far more potential to VR etc than just games. There’s an increasing number of […]
You’ve likely all see the videos showing VR users actually immersed in a VR world, like the demo at WWDC. The question is, how can you do the same with your work? Well aside from requiring a few extra bits of gear to your normal VR setup, it actually seems fairly straight forward. Ars technica […]
There might be something to this VR/AR business… But seriously it will be interesting to see how these numbers shift in the coming years.
Part of my Udcaity VR course involves doing a quick/light review of a Google Cardboard app. So I figured I might as well post that here too. VR App review – Google Street View – iOS To call Google Street View for iOS a VR app feels like a bit of a stretch. Upon opening the […]
Ever since Pokemon Go, AR seems to have worked its way into the “parlance of our time“. Truth be told we’ve actually had loads of examples of AR apps for years now, just not combined with a cultural phenomenon like Pokemon. I think it’s fair to say it’s highly likely there’s about to be a […]
Now this is exciting stuff. AR is only just getting started, but now it has the key, a platform.
I’ve been studying VR development for a few months now. As I advance in the course I’m having to choose a specialisation. I’m more interested in high immersion VR, like the stuff seen in the below video. Unfortunately, the cost of a VR setup is around $5k, which is quite prohibitive. One of the challenges […]
