Kicking off Cardboctober I’ve decided to go with something very simple.
I’m using Three.js (as I will be for pretty much all of the Cardboctober hacks), along with the
DeviceOrientationControls.js plugins to provide a VR experience.
So what does this do?
Not a lot actually, it’s just a spinning/bouncing red cube. If you view it through Google cardboard it will be stereoscopically 3D, and you will be able to look around.
Some caveats you’ll find with this very primitive 3D scene are that you can’t actually move from the fixed position that I’ve stuck the camera in, and the whole scene is oriented based on Cardinal North, so if you’re facing in the wrong direction you might not see the cube.
