Today we’ve launched a new library and developer tutorial and sample project showing you how to implement your own Cardboard VR web applications using PlayCanvas.
Google’s Cardboard VR is an excellent low cost device for experiencing virtual reality via your phone and a simple head mounted display. At PlayCanvas we immediately saw the benefit of using WebGL to display 3D VR experiences right in your browser. With WebGL VR you can distribute VR content quickly and easily to every user with a mobile web browser. With nothing to install there is no barrier to entry.
Our demonstration project shows you a example of a simple interactive VR scene that you can use to learn.
On a mobile device just tap the view above to enable the Cardboard VR mode. Our tutorial will walk you through how to add VR to your projects.
This is the start of VR support in PlayCanvas and we’ll be working to integrate Cardboard VR and WebVR closer into the editor as they get more popular.
