The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, June 1, 2015 5:56 AM


Liz Stinson:  "IN A LOT of ways, designing in virtual reality is just like designing in real life. Certain rules must be followed to ensure that people have an enjoyable experience. In the physical world, this might mean you can navigate a building without getting frustrated; in the virtual one, it means you won’t puke on your shoes."

Google opens code for building interactive experiences in physical spaces

Google opens code for building interactive experiences in physical spaces | Augmented, Alternate and Virtual Realities in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The framework, which is called Interactive Spaces, is distributed under the permissive Apache license and is available for download from a Mercurial repository hosted on Google Code. The search giant announced the new framework in a post on its official open source software blog.

Interactive Spaces is implemented primarily in Java, but it has a scripting bridge that supports JavaScript and Python. The framework provides a high-level architecture for building "activities" that respond to events in a room..

 

KF:  I suppose looking over the horizon that these developments will likely lead to new ways of thinking about training environments and simulations.
