Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality

Course Overview

  1. Why This Course?

    Virtual Reality gives users an immersive 3D gaming experience and Unity 5, along with its stunning 3D animation capabilities, is one of the best choices for game developers to create out-of-the-box Virtual Reality games for different platforms such as Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, and Samsung Gear VR. This course takes a practical, project-based approach to teach you the basics of Virtual Reality development with the Unity 3D game engine. We walk through a series of hands-on projects, step-by-step tutorials, and in-depth discussions using Unity 5 and other free or open source software. While VR technology is rapidly advancing, we'll capture the basic principles and techniques that you can use to make your VR games and applications immersive and comfortable.
