If you’re like me, you’ve spent hours staring at Windows 98 screensavers when you were growing up. Sadly, screensavers are no more, but we’ve got the power to fix that. In this talk, I’ll walk you through how to harness modern technology to revive the dream of the 90s. Using A-Frame and other modern web technologies, I’ll show you how to recreate some iconic imagery, including 3D Pipes, The Maze, and The Matrix screensavers.
Virtual reality can be daunting—it’s unclear what you can do with it and it’s hard to know where to even start. I’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, I’ll also walk you through the ecosystem of VR libraries and affordable hardware that’s currently out there.
