|Session Name:||VRTK and How to Make Developing for VR Easier|
|Track / Format:||Innovation|
Did you know free users get access to 30% of content from the last 2 years?
|Overview:||This session is a discussion into VRTK (the virtual reality toolkit for Unity 3d) and how it can be used to help content creators put their ideas into VR. In this talk, Developer Harvey Ball will showcase all of the features that VRTK offers developers and how they can be extended and customized for building new VR experiences. VRTK has evolved over the last year from a few simple scripts into a fully fledged VR development community that provides a base for existing and new developers to put their ideas into virtual reality. Many lessons have been learned along the way of what works and what potentially doesn't work in virtual reality by giving developers a place to try out new ideas and give access to others to test these ideas in games and other virtual reality experiences. The future of VRTK is to keep building a platform that enables people to take their creative ideas and bring them into virtual reality, also continuing to provide a community where developers of all backgrounds can share ideas and work together to improve VR.|
