i-Space: Student Project - VR Tour of the Library’s i-Space

Consisting of the Digital Makerspace, Digital Visualisation Room, One Button Studio, Digital Studio and Digital Creativity Workstations

3D Modelling and Virtual Reality Tour of the Library’s i-Space

A virtual reality tour was developed by a student that allows the user to navigate and explore the virtual Library’s i-Space (4/F North Wing) freely using a mouse and keyboard as playing a first-person shooter game. The student used 3DS MAX 3D modeling software to create a virtual space of i-Space and its 3D objects bit by bit including furniture, plants, laser printers, 3D printers and PCs video wall. Then, all these 3D objects are imported into Unity software to complete the VR game development. With his tremendous effort, user can get the first-person experience of the i-Space just like visiting in person and learn about what facilities provided in the Digital Makerspace. The web version of the virtual tour is available here. Android version installed in a mobile device is available at i-Space only. Please make a consultation appointment or visit us directly at the Digital Makerspace at i-Space, 4/F.

For resource and knowledge sharing, the asset package including 3D objects and texture images of the Library i-Space is available for download (PolyU/CPCE students and staff only).  This asset package can be imported into Unity software.  You can try out and build a puzzle solving game with i-Space background in Unity software.
