3.1 Conclusion

Thanks for joining me, Sue Smith, for the Tutsplus VR for Google Cardboard and Android course. Throughout the course we have familiarized ourselves with the essential features in a cardboard app. We have hacked parts of the sample project to understand how the pieces fit together and to gain an overview of the open gl shaped modeling code as well as the cardboard stk code. In this course we have only made edits to two of the Java files in the app. The main activity class and the world layout data class. So take some time to explore the other parts of the sample code that we didn't touch on. There's a lot going on in the app with various different resources being used. The sample project provides a useful reference point for carrying out common tasks when you develop cardboard apps. So you might find yourself referring to it as you build your own vr content. Particularly since the official documentation for cardboard development is fairly basic at this stage. Since the technologies are still experimental. There are some useful projects developing with cardboard on GitHub. So if you're looking for ideas or approaches, they're well worth a look. If you plan on building your 3D shapes using Unity check out the Google APIs for Unity. In particular the cardboard stk at Android. And for solutions to any problems you have see the cardboard tag on stack overflow. If you're looking for inspiration for your next cardboard projects check out the available cardboard compatible apps using the official Google cardboard app on your device. It's also worth trying the cardboard camera up which allows you to capture panaronamic images on your device and then present them within a cardboard stale interface. Hope you've enjoyed the course and have fun building your virtual reality things.
