Building games for Google Cardboard VR

This hands-on session will show you how to use Unity 3D to build VR games for iOS and Android, targeting the Google Cardboard headset.

We’ll explore the basics of setting up an environment for VR, how to use the Cardboard VR toolkit for Unity, and UX and UI considerations for VR development. We’ll pay particular attention to considerations for the Google Cardboard.

By the end of the session, attendees will have an understanding of the fundamentals of building VR games for Google Cardboard, using Unity.
