Intergalactic Exploration
Virtual reality is a platform that can provide an immersive and interactive experience with virtual objects. VR controllers provide users with the sensation and capabilities to manipulate and control virtual objects. These experiences currently range from drawing with a paint brush in Tilt Brush, or firing arrows and defending your castle in Valve's virtual archery to name a few. However, certain tasks and actions performed in VR can be extremely repetitive and tiring in VR. Traditional GUI interfaces using toolbars and menus for organizing actions are not only cumbersome to navigate for beginner users, but also not usable in many VR experiences. This hackathon project demonstrates the capabilities of using voice commands for controlling and initiating actions in VR, which can directly map the user's intent with the actions they want to perform in VR.
