my name is Cow,
and wen its day,
or wen the sun
is shiyning yay,
and wif my friends
to all the ends -
the stroke i get.
i lik the pet.
What it does
You will find yourself immersed in a virtual world where you can pet Cow at your leisure. Relax with Cow while enjoying the ambient music.
How we built it
We placed Unity animal and nature assets into a virtual world, and configured Oculus Rift to view this world. We then used the Myo Armband to control a virtual hand that allows you to pet the animals.
Challenges we ran into
We did not have any experience with Unity, Oculus Rift, nor Myo Armband, and it was a challenge right from the start to get things working. We managed to have the virtual world and hand movements working separately, but initially we were unable to get both together in the same scene. We figured a way to import the scripts from the hand controls, and got the petting zoo to work!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This is our first VR and Myo Armband project, and we learned a lot about both technologies.
What's next for Petting Cow
Support for more animals and having animals react to petting.
