In this course we’ll be using the Open Source VRTK library (version 1.x) which allows developers to quickly create prototypes in VR using Unity. This library supports SteamVR-compatible headsets (HTC Vive, Oculus Touch), the Oculus SDK, Google Daydream and GearVR. Through out this module we cover different locomotion and interaction components in VRTK.
By the end of the course students will have built a deep-sensory VR experience: a rock climbing experience where the player uses their hands to climb up a giant rock.

- Interacting, grabbing, throwing, “using” objects with the controllers
