Short Session Description (one line): The process of creating a library tour in virtual reality, and its potential implementations
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): This session will cover an overview of the steps needed to create a 3D model of the library, import it into a game development engine, add interaction, and add compatibility with the VR Headset. There won’t be time for deeper technical details, but I will go into which tools I used and how I found resources to learn these tools, plus a few lessons learned along the way. Then I will discuss potential uses for the VR library space in the near term, and uses further down the line if more features can be added.
