Last year, we featured 6 kickass Unity assets with the power to bring your project to the next level. Since we’re giving away five $100 Unity/Unreal asset credits as part of our 2016 developer survey, we thought we’d share some more cool stuff you can buy with cold hard virtual cash. From a community-created Leap […]

Last month, we released our Pinch Utilities Module, making it easier to create experiences based on how we naturally use our hands in the real world. Here are six community projects that are using this fundamental interactive building block for 3D creativity, menu design, and godlike solar system powers.

Today we’re happy to announce an update to our VR Developer Mount designed to be compatible with the latest generation of VR headsets!

Earth’s remaining dinosaur population is making a comeback. In Vox Rocks Dino Destroyer, you can blast through four levels of block-filled action with the power of magnetics, color coordination, and broken dino teeth. Created by Mark Mayer, Dino Destroyer is the 4th place winner of the 3D Jam VR Track. But before the […]

You can do a lot of things with Blocks: smack them around, turn off gravity, select different modes and shapes. But at its heart, our flagship demo for Orion contains two fundamental interactions – creating blocks and grabbing blocks. These are built on pinching and grabbing, which are based on how we naturally use our […]

The Core Asset Orion documentation has details on using the tools and the underlying API, but to help you get acquainted, here’s some […]

Along with major performance improvements and an improved workflow, you also now have access to the first of many add-on modules.
