Turtle VR

Greetings!

Turtle VR was released for the Oculus DK2 and Razer Hydra on October 21, and is available for download from www.turtlevr.com. I’ve put together a short video going over what you can do with Turtle VR:

Using a virtual tablet you program a drawing turtle in real-time to create within a 3D space.

------------------------------------------ Original Message About Turtle VR ------------------------------------------

Presenting Turtle VR, a programmable drawing turtle using Google Blockly for the Rift and Razer Hydra. Enjoy an overview video that details Turtle VR’s capabilities:

With a tablet style interface combined with Google’s Blockly, we are able to drive a programmable turtle in real-time while in VR. Draw and explore geometry using the blocks Turtle VR provides, and browse through the provided catalog of programs. Block-based programming makes it easy for anyone to get started.

The Turtle VR demo will be available for free in the next couple of weeks. It requires a Razer Hydra and Oculus Rift to operate. We would love to get this running on the HTC Vive and Oculus Touch!

Technology Used:

  • UE4 4.8

  • Google Blockly

  • CoherentUI

  • Speedtree

As a kid I’ve loved programming with Logo. It’s a great idea to have it in a VR environment.

Turtle VR is a prototype towards a larger, world building application. I figured what better way to test out the tablet interface than allowing you to do something creative like programming a drawing. Seeing the turtle draw around you when you stand in the center of the drawing area is lots of fun!

Thanks for featuring Turtle VR on today’s stream Community Spotlight! Next time I’ll be sure to add some images to the thread before hand. :slight_smile:

Looking forward to releasing Turtle VR next week for the Rift and Razer Hydra. Would love to also release for the Vive, but I’m still waiting for one. :frowning:
