Game design around Unity game engine for Magic Leap goggles. These are 3D glasses and unlike other altered 3D, the software projects the images onto the eyes and maps the environment, doing away with a computer screen.

The possibilities for educational software is beyond comprehension. Imagine a teacher explaining chemistry in a classroom full of seven-year-olds? Not much luck that they will understand the complexities.

Now imagine the same situation with a teacher telling students to pull two atoms of hydrogen from their periodic library and one atom of oxygen atoms. The kids put the atoms together and the new atom (water) splashes towards their faces and onto the desk. Then a 3D cartoon pops up out of their desk with a new lesson that explains how water can become a solid, liquid and a gas.

The students can build upon this simple lesson for each class and at the end of the week, take a test in which they actually create water, hydrogen peroxide and other mixtures. They will understand oxidation as in H2SO4 sulfuric acid among other things, like how to create the hex formulas. They can sit in groups and learn together.

I am an assistant professor in psychology now, but I was an elementary and special education teacher before teaching at the university.

I have the SDK from Magic Leap and there is a virtual environment so testing of the game can be made instead of buying $3,000 US goggles.

Bu tür uygulamaları Endonezya'dan bir şirkette gördüm. - I have seen such apps in a company from Indonesia. https://connect.unity.com/p/eduscience-1
I am American, not Turkish. I see that you are all Turkish game developers but if you don't mind me being here, I'm honored. Thank you.

Bu grup ırkçı değil, sadece bu grupta Türk çoğunluğu var. - This group is not racist, only there are Turk majority at this group. - Biz Türk Oyun Geliştiricileri grup üyeleriyiz. - We are Turk Game Developers group members together. - Seni aramızda gördüğüme sevindim. - I'm glad to see you among us.

I would love to write in Turkish. Unfortunately, I cannot as I have never learned the language.

You might have noticed I have two games I'd like to create. I'm working on a tutorial for the racing game from Jimmy Vegas. I'd still appreciate a more experienced person's help.

A Rally Racing Game that no one has ever thought of or built. The game will involve pedestrians, normal traffic, stoplights, road hazards and more.

The game requires players to pay an entrance fee to race. The winner gets a cash prize. There's a lot more to it. Interested in collaboration? def contact me ASAP. Thanks

@Isaiah definitely. I had a death in my family and have been busy with all of that. Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I hope you understand. There's a great tutorial if you want to learn racing games. Look up Jimmy Vegas on YouTube. he's phenomenal.

Reply@IsaiahThis sounds interesting! I wouldn't mind making the road hazards and the challenging obstacles. I am not highly experienced, although I know the basics in car scripts and I learn quickly. As long as there is a plan, which it seems like you do. I can follow this very easily!
