The immersive Lab – Log Three

Early design choices..

In this log I would like to take the opportunity to talk about the initial design choices and show some screens and comment on them.

The first environment I tested was the cube, it has a room cube, baked lights a Player element (w/ Google virtual reality interactive elements for Cardboard and Daydream ) , as well as 4 interact-able game objects with their respective canvas and UI elements (1) “Meet us” – With a movie logo, this one has access to the 360 movies, (2) “see the lab” this one has a access to the 360 lab tour, (3) Activity – With a Thunder Logo – this one has access to the 3D interactive animations.

My general feeling was that, even tho this was a nice environment felt a bit different to what I had envisioned for this project.

I tough probably a sphere would be more pleasant to work with, so I resourced to a sphere and used an shared that would map the material at the inside of the game object sphere, rather than at the outside, and added a material relevant to the theme, kept and modified the “Player” object from Google VR as well as the interactive SDK elements, it was easier that remaking everything from scratch.

I was not happy with the color choices, so I tried again. This time I selected as a background an electrophoresis gel  result that I found online under creative commons, I think this results when colored are quite kinetic and beautiful. After that I proceeded to collect colour samples and a used the same colors for the UI, added an ambient tune, a rotating script and Voila!, the sphere rotate on the Y axis, I think it looks great!.

As well I stitched some 360 pictures, and added to the the center of my sphere and added a “Go back” to main menu UI, I think the images look great at the inside of the sphere. I had some issues with the video, and the orientation of the images but I will be talking about them in the next blog thank you for reading…

3Ds Max Modelling and animation For Unity

I created this 3D models to as my first 3ds max models and animation, Lego’s are awesome and I have had always loved them, so I was trying to get a bit of a surreal  and find an imaginative way to say you can go to the stars and excite people about sciences!, it was really fun to model and I was really delighted to find this new skills I have learned. Please watch the video of the full animation below!
