In this video Emmanuel Henri introduces React VR, explains how to leverage previous React knowledge, and shows the initial project that it provides when first creating an app with the CLI and what is the provided code, too.
- [Instructor] React VR is a recent library that allows you to build VR apps using design concepts and patterns like React and React Native and allowing you to build amazing VR experiences. With React VR, you are able to use specific VR components built to add 3D models, lights, sound, video, and so many other items to create a rich VR environment. And in this course, we'll do just that. Also, because React VR is part of the React family and ecosystem, we can leverage existing tools and frameworks that work with React and React Native, such as routing, data management, and navigation.
After initial setup, you'll see a pre-built project to show you an example of what is possible with the usual hello world. We'll go through this soon. And this is exactly what we're looking at right now. So let's skip to VS Code and I'll show you quickly, and we'll go through these steps in future videos, but I wanted to show you the code, the amount of code that we had to do to do the example. So right now, this is the only amount of code that actually shows what we've seen on the screen. So you have the panoramic chess world image here that we're using, and then you have a text, and this basically builds that little environment.
So as you can see, it doesn't take much to get started in VR, so let's move on.
- Finding inspiration on the web
- Testing projects with a Gear VR headset
- Working with 3D coordinates and transforms
- Building a 360-degree background
- Adding primate components and 3D models
- Adding sound and interactivity
