VR/MR Maker

I was in London for a few days so popped down to a UAL affiliated VR/MR maker day in Chelsea College of Art.


It was fairly informal and there were various desks/sections featuring Arduino, Leap Motion, Virtual Reality etc..I was interested in getting an overview into how one sets up a Virtual reality environment in 3D gaming software Unity, and create a Terrain, work with collidors, prefabs etc..


I also got a demonstration of a 360 3D/Spherical camera the Ricoh Theta S, this is for grabbing 360 live video or still footage. Overall a worthwhile and enlightening day.

Arduino breadboard is connected to Bare Paint on x2 nipple stickers, hand over bare paint sensor triggers audio.



Note to Self:

  • Windcheater: There is a similar idea to be explored for DIY wearable with a noise generating speaker cut into the back of a jacket.
  • Arduino Lilypad: I think I may need a Lilypad to pursue the Windcheater idea, it’s a microcontroller board designed for wearables and e-textiles.
