ADDING TANGIBILITY TO THE INTANGIBLE
I showed up on a Saturday to get some extra time experimenting with Unreal Engine 4. It was much easier to make progress without the constraints of bells or schedules. Weather conditions prohibited us from attending our meeting on 2/9 so we rescheduled for the middle of this week. Until then, we need lots of preparation in order to deploy our simulation successfully.
I spent some time in Virtual Reality looking at applications similar to our focus area. I glanced at the Virtual Fine Arts Museum which received some new additions. I viewed Claude Monet's Water Lilies. The art I saw looked better than any I've seen in Virtual Reality before. I took a look at A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by George Seurat. When I stepped up close to the painting, I could see the dots that the artist used to create the painting in the style of Pointillism. Today, I was really impressed by the power of Virtual Reality, and the realistic experiences it can convey.
Our experimentation with Google Cardboard continues.
