Pygmalion’s Spectacles

My pro­ject in my fi­nal year on the Graphic Design FdA at Camberwell was to make VR shit”. I de­signed and built a se­ries of vi­gnettes ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent vi­su­als and in­ter­ac­tions in vir­tual re­al­ity.

All of this was built in A-Frame (with 3d-modelling in Blender), so it works in the browser with­out hav­ing to in­stall any­thing. I ran this on a Samsung Galaxy S6 in a Gear VR, and the per­for­mance was sur­pris­ingly good.

The ti­tle is a ref­er­ence to the first piece of lit­er­a­ture to de­scribe vir­tual re­al­ity gog­gles.
