As an aspiring video game programmer, I believe virtual reality is the next big step forward in our industry. Virtual reality brings with it a multitude of applications which can be used in our daily lives in areas such as entertainment, education, and medicine. Thus, Cal hacks inspired me to roam through this new field and learn from devices such as the Oculus Rift and 3D modeling. I put a lot of thought in what i wanted to build, and suddenly I thought Carl Sagan's "The pale blue dot". What better way to show how small our world is there than putting the individual far away from our planet in a virtual place in space! I worked hard, and i finally managed to map a full solar system in 3D with Oculus Support and a joystick interface.
