About this event

• What we'll do
We're going to show you how to get up and running with VR development using Google's Daydream VR library and Unity.

• What to bring
You should bring a laptop with Unity installed and it would be best if you could bring a Daydream compatible phone (listed below) but that is not necessary.

Google Pixel and Pixel 2
Samsung Note8, Galaxy S8 and S8+
LG V30
Motorola Moto Z, Moto Z Force and Moto Z 2 Force
ZTE Axon 7
Huawei Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 9

!! Important to know !!

Before you come make sure your system is configured for Android development using the Android SDK/NDK Setup Guide.

Download and install Unity from the Unity Website. **It’s important to make sure that you check the box next to Android Build Support during install**

Download the GoogleVR for Unity package from the GoogleVR GitHub page.

This will make sure that everyone is ready to get started since downloading these things can take quite a bit of time.
