Turtle VR

Turtle VR 1.0 is now available for download: TurtleVR-1-0.zip  Built with Oculus SDK 0.7.

 

Turtle VR is a 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 code blocks Turtle VR provides, and browse through the provided catalog of programs. Block-based programming makes it easy for anyone to get started.

Beta tutorial video that is still useful.  The main difference from v1.0 is the addition of the Program Start block that designates the beginning of your program.
