As someone who yearns to go back outside but can't because their state might still be on lockdown during the summer. I wanted to build an experience that simulates the outside accurately to share with others that felt the same way. Based off my vague memory of what it's like to be outside, it's been a month and a half.
What it does
Portrays the outdoor experience accurately made by someone who stays indoors.
How I built it
I used a HTML framework known as A-Frame in which you can write HTML syntax to make objects in VR.
Challenges I ran into
Loading all the assets and repositioning them accurately through trail and error in code. Finding out that GitHub has an max file size limit. Unable to get the Oculus controllers to move player.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Loading all the assets and repositioning them accurately through trail and error in code.
What I learned
Finding out that GitHub has an max file size limit.
What's next for Backyard Simulator
