Programmer and UX designer at Unity Greg Madison knows that many are stuck at home under quarantine, but for those with an Oculus Quest virtual reality headset, your living space can become a game. Introducing the ‘Gamefied Real Estate’ project, which is essentially a custom-built room in Unity that was then synchronized with the actual living environment. Read more for a video of it in-action.
Unfortunately, the Oculus Quest can not yet render environments in real-time, so one still needs to be created beforehand. For those interested, it will soon be available on SideQuestVR for users to try out his experimentations with tangible UI.
- Personal Viewing: The littlest, big screen. Crystal clear optics and state-of-the-art 3D graphics make your headset feel more like a personal theater
- Viewing with Friends: Watch with friends. Meet up in VR with friends and fans from around the world to catch live sports, concerts, or just your favorite TV show
- Portable & Easy to use: Ready when you are. Experience portable, all-in-one VR. That means no PC, phone, wires or hassles
- Controller: Effortless control. Whether it's navigating to your favorite shows or to a far-off land, the intuitive controller makes getting there a cinch
- Built-In Audio: Surrounded by sound. Spatial audio drivers are built right into the headset, providing dramatic, immersive sound without the need for bulky or tangled headphones. Oculus Go also features a 3.5 millimeter audio jack
I turned my apartment into a VR game platform since I work from home. Thanks to @Oculus Quest & @unity3d. If you have to be locked in your home all day, might as well make it fun!,” said Madison.
