Google’s Cardboard Design Lab teaches VR with (what else) VR
Google debuted its bigger and extra strong Cardboard VR headset at I/O yesterday, now it wants some apps that really run on it. Nevertheless, designing a program in a digital 3D surroundings is sort of totally different than designing one to run on a 2D touchscreen. That is why Google has additionally launched the Cardboard Design Lab, an app that teaches you the fundamentals of VR design from inside a VR surroundings. This system runs via 10 elementary design elements — from “Utilizing a Reticle” and “Preserving the Consumer Grounded” to “Guiding with Mild” and “Gaze Cues” — all from inside the confines of the Cardboard headset. It will not rework you into an VR hacking wizard in a single day (as it isn’t designed to) however CDL will give neophyte coders a strong overview of what they’re getting themselves into. And whereas the teachings discovered right here can simply as simply be utilized to designing for the Rift as Cardboard, the app is at present solely obtainable on Android.
