    About this course

    Are you are interested in Virtual Reality (VR) and want to learn how it works? Or do you want to create your own VR experiences? If yes, this Learning Path is just right for you.

    Packt’s Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.

    Unity 5 has emerged to become the leader in building Virtual Reality games and applications for different platforms.

    This Learning Path takes a practical, project-based approach to teach you about the specifics of VR development with the Unity 3D game engine. You will explore the technical considerations that are important and possibly unique to VR. The projects in this Learning Path will demonstrate how to build a variety of VR experiences. The projects will increase in complexity as the Learning Path progresses and will help you make the transition to a pro VR developer with Unity 5.

    By the end of the Learning Path, you’ll be able to develop rich, interactive virtual reality experiences using Unity.
