Learning through Art: An Introduction to VR

Virtual reality can be dauntingโ€”itโ€™s unclear what you can do with it and itโ€™s hard to know where to even start. Iโ€™ll introduce you to fundamental VR concepts by re-creating an interactive installation art piece by Yayoi Kusama in A-Frame, a VR web framework. So you can try it out at home, Iโ€™ll also walk you through the ecosystem of VR libraries and affordable hardware thatโ€™s currently out there.
