After class on Thursday, Jake and I put the class video up on Youtube: https://youtu.be/chnLsDhn43c . You might enjoy watching it and scrolling around in it with your mouse. I will have to check to see if it is viewable in Google Cardboard--I think not at this time?? Anyway, I looked at it through the headset (which we'll have to do some class) and there were some interesting aspects to it.
1. you have to be very careful where you place the camera! During the first scene everyone was a certain size, but in the second scene suddenly Anya and Jingyu were huge because they were so close to the camera. This was truly shocking!
2. I found it really fun to look at the reactions of the people watching the actions opposed to those people doing the action. For example, it was fun to watch Anya and Jingyu reacting to the dancers. And it was fun to watch People react to the people reading.
The Oculus headset has a remote control that does some pointing. If we wanted to have some interaction in VR, we would have to build something in Unity...which we could try to do, for sure.
I also was investigating the VR painting. The Google Tilt Brush is what was used to do the VR painting in the earlier blog post. Here's a news clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBJPIgNXUDI And a tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r80XvHP91hc
Gotta get one!!
