virtual island

Date

Started development summer 2006

Description

The goal of this team project was to create a tropical island environment in virtual reality to show off the newly-upgraded six-wall C6 display at VRAC. It includes a hovercraft that can be driven in water and on land. My primary contribution was to integrate collision detection and rigid-body dynamics, along with physics-based control of the virtual camera.

The images below show the island application running in the C6.
