Introduction to Unity and VR World and Advanced Unity Development or equivalent experience.
In this course we’ll be using the Unity XR Interaction Toolkit which works for both the major AR and VR headsets. This means the interactions you build will work for AR headsets such as the Microsoft Hololens and Magic Leap headsets as well as the major VR headsets such as all the Oculus, HTC, Valve, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
We will be covering Unity XR setup, XR hand presence, teleportation, continuous movement, Git and GitHub to work with multiple developers on a single Unity project. We will also match you to a group of fellow fellow students and talented VR developers to start building your vision for your VR app. Your team will create a project design document with your team for your XR app and execute it week by week.
Students will be able to develop VR applications and work with multiple developers to publish their VR app. You will understand how to set up Unity for VR dev, use the Unity Interactions Toolkit and execute your team's vision for your VR app.
Prior experience requirements: VR World and Advanced Development experience or equivalent is recommended to be successful in this course
In this 10 week live course, you will build your own VR app using Unity's XR Interactions SDK. You will be matched with a complementary team of 2-3 peers where you will work together to build your VR app. You will set up Unity for VR development, program VR hand presence and teleportation into your VR app and use Git and GitHub to work with multiple developers on a single Unity project.
Outcome: Students will be prepared to continue working with the team formed in this course to publish their app to the Oculus App Store in the VR Application Interactions and Publishing course.
