Virtual reality development: where can people use your product?
Experiencing high quality VR isn’t accessible for most consumers due to the high costs of the technology. Luckily there are options. There is a VR-café where you can try various VR experiences and games. Besides that there are more and more affordable options to try VR at home. One of the most accessible ways to try out VR are the plastic and cardboard VR glasses that work with modern smartphones.
By making a 360 picture or a 360 video (with your phone or a special 360 camera) you can experience the simplest VR right at home. This is one of the easiest ways to create a VR experience, but in this way you can only show things that are already there. So, the question is... How to create your own environment?
Virtual reality development: this is how you build your fist app
Your first virtual reality application can be made in a day. The first thing you should do is getting a VR-headset for home use. The cardboard ones are a good option when you are just starting out. You need this because you want to see what you created so you can tweak if necessary. Most VR applications are built in a game engine such as Unreal Engine or Unity.
Unity is the most accessible of the two so that’s the one we would recommend using for your first VR development project. Download Unity and install the Google Unity Plug-in. Import this plugin and you can start creating your own VR-scene.
