Started with the Aframe Presentation slide to explain the basics of WebVR and A-frame. Students were really interested to know more about it.

After a while, students were getting bored, so I started with Virtual Girlfriend story ( Prathamesh’s story it is ) to explain the difference of VR, AR, and MR. And what all application we can build and solve real problems.

The event was really good, students asked many questions related to Mozilla, it’s product and Open Source in general. Would love to visit again 🙂

Virtual Reality @ Indian Institute of Technology (BHU)

Again trio has come together for a wonderful event. This time it was IIT-BHU. The event started with the introduction of the speakers, Shahbaz, Umesh and Prathamesh ( trio aka SUP ). Prathamesh started the session explaining the difference between VR, AR, and MR. People were amazed to know that they will be creating their VR experience after the brief presentation.

After Prathamesh, I talked about basics of WebVR and how easy it is to build in just a few lines of codes.

The hacking began with remixing Hello World example on glitch.

In this blog, I’ll be using more pics to describe what happened in the event.

How many of you know Virtual Reality?

 

WebVR mentors helping participants in solving their problems.

 

Participants helping each other and more focus on the challenge. Yes, we do have our famous WebVR contest here too. Best scenes get an A-frame tee.

Time to see the VR experience on the headset. Participants loved their first experience and the best part was, they were seeing their own imagination and faces show all.

Playing with the LEAP, Leap Motion’s hand tracking technology is designed to be embedded directly into VR/AR headsets.
