Demolition Library

A virtual reality experience in an abandoned library using a physical book as a controller.

Put on your headset and enter a mysterious abandoned library. What is this place? How long has it been like this? What are you doing there? Who cares?

Pick up a book. Throw it. Run around. Knock things over. Make a mess. In Virtual Reality, no one will tell you how to behave.

A wifi-enabled microcontroller and a few sensors enables a real book to communicate with a Google Cardboard app written in Unity.  The tactile sensation of handling the book enhances the virtual experience, and makes the virtual acts of destruction all that more satisfying.
