This week, we’re happy to announce that the source code for Planetarium is now available on GitHub. It’s been an incredible project so far, and our team is excited to continue developing our core Widgets for VR experiences.

In the Twitch episode at the top of this post, Daniel and Barrett talk about the development process behind Planetarium – including the challenges of VR UX and UI development, how we built the planetarium and foundational Widgets, designing Arm HUD and Widget scaffolding, our roadmap for the future, and more.
