This week KaiXR launched their new platform for VR field trips. They focused on creating an accessible and inclusive tool for use in classrooms as well as a low-cost Cardboard kit. At launch, KaiXR has four schools online with around one thousand students and they are currently looking for more partners.
The PlayCanvas team rezzed templates in their editor and runtime this week. This feature allows XR teams to collaboratively construct reusable objects and then use them multiple times with minimal duplication of effort or rendering cost.
This video course introduces the core concepts of Three.js and WebXR by stepping students through the process of creating an architectural walk-through, a game, and a basic training application. The classes are designed for people who are familiar with web development but may not have used XR or own a headset. Nik's GLSL Shaders course is highly rated and this summary video provides a good feel for his teaching style.
