Join the Party in Social VR

Virtual Reality can be quite isolating if only one person can experience it all alone. Meanwhile, Social VR brings people together virtually and provides a unique opportunity for collaboration that is both immersive and interactive. Social VR collaboration is a perfect solution for the distributed project team, where team members could be physically located in different cities, states, or even countries. Using Social VR, a project team could meet while immersed in the VR model. They can review the project model while taking a virtual tour together. This session will show you how to turn your isolating VR model into a Social VR model, and create a Social VR experience where multiple participants can chat with each other, review the project virtually and take some selfie all while immersed in Virtual Reality. During the class, we will go from Revit, to 3D Max, to Unity with Photon VR for network, and create some avatar prefabs and experience the VR using Vive and Rift VR system. (Joint AU/Forge DevCon class).
