Learn about the five leading VR products. Write your first VR game for Google Cardboard, a $20 VR device!

After a false-start in the 1980s, it really is finally time for VR to shine. Facebook famously bought Oculus for $2bn in 2014, and 2016 will see several major headsets hit the market (Oculus Rift, Sony Project Morpheus, HTC Vive and more).

Major game engines such as Unity and Unreal are now supporting VR, and the computer power required to drive VR is finally affordable. Today we have some great platforms to work with including Oculus Developer Kit 2 (DK2), Google Project Cardboard, and Samsung Gear VR.


What Will I Learn?

You will learn about the current VR offerings, explore their fundamental capabilities and requirements, and then make a simple game for Google Project Cardboard using the free game development software Unity.

This course is for intermediate students of Unity and C#. You will need the ability to make basic games in Unity, or a strong C# background. before starting this course


Why Learn This Now?

All those device that are coming out next year will need apps, and there's only one chance to be first in a particular space. Furthermore there are already millions (yes millions) of existing owners of Cardboard devices.

Please note that to build to iOS devices for Google Cardboard you will need access to a Mac running a recent version of XCode.

In addition you can re-apply your knowledge to create apps for both the iOS and Android app store, which already have hundreds of VR apps. Now is just the right time to join them.


Who Are You To Teach Us?

Ben has already co-created the most popular Unity development course on Udemy. It is also the 3rd most popular paid adult learning course on the Internet according to The Telegraph newspaper. We're confident that we can help you build the skills in VR you need to get started.


What Will We Do?

In the first section we will compare and contrast platforms, explore the basics, and learn to make some important calculations. We will then move onto the $20 Google Cardboard, where we will build a game called Squashy Toad. Take a look at the syllabus below for more information.

The VR wave is about to come in, and I'd love you to be on it with us.
