For NowHere Media, I created a prototype for their project "Berlin 2037", a VR experience in which the player is sitting on a real-world bicycle and moves forward by pedaling. The goal of the project is to show a vision of how Berlin and the experience of cycling through it could look like in the future.
My responsibilities were:
- Setting up the basic VR project.
- Planning and integrating the electronics necessary to capture real-world bicycle user input (wheel speed and steering wheel angle) using an Arduino.
- Working together with the 3D artist to integrate the scenes and 3D animations.
- Working together with the SFX engineer to integrate sound effects and ambience.
I worked on the prototype only. The video below is showing a later version of the project that I didn't work on, but it can give you a more visual idea of what the prototype was about.
