Firework Factory VR - Windows
- Rift DK1 & Rift DK2FREE
Customize virtual fireworks in the Firework Factory. You can share your favorites, watch them explode from any angle and even control time itself! Drift slowly amongst bullet-time fireworks passing by, get up-close-and-personal with the most explosive fireworks, view a slow zen-like firework implosion, or anywhere in-between. This demo is slightly limited. You get all of the "experience" features, but many of the firework customization options are disabled. Look for the full version once consumer VR devices become available! Firework Factory VR is about more than just creating fireworks. This app is an exploration into new virtual reality experiences and user interfaces by a small, independent software development company (Aesthetic Interactive). The user interfaces in Firework Factory VR are built upon Aesthetic Interactive's own Hover VR Interface Kit, which provides interface-building tools for VR, AR, and 3D input devices.
Firework Factory VR features a next-generation, holographic menu interface (built using the Hover VR Interface Kit) that responds to the position of your fingers. Using a Leap Motion Controller, move your "cursor" fingers near to the menu panels. The menu items become highlighted as you move closer, and a selection occurs when your finger hovers directly above an item. Each custom firework contains two independent style groups (named "A" and "B"). You can choose different colors, shapes, sizes, and settings for each group, and then watch them explode together! Certain menu panels include a left-side tab items for selecting the active style group. The row of tab items along the bottom lets you switch between several menu panels: The Stars, Tails, and Pyro panels control the colors, sizes, and shapes of the firework. The Time panel controls the speed of time -- fast, slow, forward, or backward! The Camera panel provides several ways to view and orbit around your firework. The Share panel contains tools for saving and loading fireworks. The View option hides all the panels -- sit back and enjoy the show! Sharing Every possible firework that you can create receives a unique Firework ID. You can use this ID and firework image (from the Share menu) to share your creation online. You can also load and view any Firework ID that you find! Input Modes This download includes three separate applications -- one for each different input mode. Choose the input mode that is most suitable for your available devices. LeapVR: pairs a Leap Motion device with the Oculus Rift headset. This is the recommended input mode, as the app and its user interfaces were designed for this mode. LookVR: using only the Oculus Rift headset, this mode positions the menu cursor in the center of your view. You "look at" the menu items to select them. Mouse: a non-VR mode with a mouse-controlled cursor. Note: certain menu controls, like the "slider" controls, are not optimized for LeapVR and Mouse usage. The menus are fully functional in these modes, but can be more tricky to use. When possible, please try the LeapVR mode.
