Today Turtle VR 1.0 is now available for the public to download and try out. Turtle VR is a virtual reality experience that allows you to use a virtual tablet, Google Blockly, and a programmable turtle to creating drawings in VR in real-time using command blocks. You may download Turtle VR and find out more at the Turtle VR home page.
As part of the weekly Unreal Engine Livestream, the guys at Epic had a short talk on Turtle VR during the Community Spotlight section. You can catch it here:
Turtle VR is a new virtual reality experience created by Gnometech. With a tablet style interface combined with Google’s Blockly, we are able to drive a programmable turtle in real-time while in VR. Draw and explore geometry using the blocks Turtle VR provides, and browse through the provided catalog programs. Block-based programming makes it easy for anyone to get started.
The Turtle VR demo will be available for free following Oculus Connect 2. It requires a Razer Hydra and Oculus Rift to operate. We would love to get this running on the HTC Vive or Oculus Touch!
Turtle VR is a beginning for us. A prototype of a more extensive VR experience we have been planning for a while. We look forward to sharing more once we get the Turtle VR demo out the door.
We had a great time demoing Here Come The Dead at the TAVES Consumer Electronics Show on November 1.

Enjoy the following highlight reel from the show!
Gnometech will be attending the TAVES Consumer Electronics Show on November 1 as part of the TorontoVR community showcase.
