In this introductory 6-hour workshop, Meehae Song will introduce various VR Prototyping techniques using A-Frame, a web-based open source VR system (WebVR). Over the 3 days, she will cover emerging fundamentals of 3D space and UX/UI considerations for prototyping VR applications. The attendees will have a chance to work in A-Frame, quickly creating and exploring prototyped VR environments.
