The Macintosh Museum
We just published our new experiment in http://ltim.uib.es/mac/!
The Macintosh Museum project is a Virtual Reality experience that can be enjoyed in the web with different devices.
In the virtual world, you will find 39 Macintosh computers used in the Department over the last 30 years. By selecting one of them, it will turn on, playing the spot with which it was advertised back then and displaying its technical specification.
If you want to try it, just browse to http://ltim.uib.es/mac/ with your device and start playing!
Four interfaces are defined:
- If you want to use a computer, you can click in the scene and move around with the keyboard (WASD and the arrow keys) and look around by moving the mouse. Place the cursor over a computer and click to select it and move to its side.
- If you want to use a smartphone, you can look around using the orientation sensors of the device or by dragging the screen. Place the cursor over a computer and touch the screen to select it and move to its side.
- If you want to use an Oculus Rift, you should click the button at the bottom right corner of the screen and then wear the HMD. Use any joystick to move around and look around by moving your head. To select a computer you need to touch it with your index finger (that is, resting your thumb on 5, not pressing 6 with your index and pressing 7 with your middle finger).
- If you want to use a Cardboard or other mobile VR device, you should click the button at the bottom right corner of the screen and then wear the HMD. Look around by moving your head. To select a computer you need to gaze it for a couple of seconds.
We hope you enjoy the activity.
