Web VR Starter Kit
Create virtual reality scenes in seconds.
Virtual Reality (VR) for journalism is all the rage at the moment. According to the Columbia Journalism Review, "consumer access to VR devices is about to take off thanks to ambitious prototypes from Oculus Rift and, in the past year, several major projects have redefined immersion journalism".
Objects can be added via an image URL for panorama and image types, or audio and video file URLs for sound and video objects respectively. Although these media files must be hosted externally, the kit does offer a library of pre-defined materials for texture maps, like grass, stone, metal, and wood.
The simplicity of this tool has been highlighted by Dan Zajdband's bunny video, which he created with only three lines of code.
