WebXR + Web Bluetooth demo
A demo by Diego González-Zúñiga and Peter O'Shaughnessy, presented at GDG DevFest Ukraine and Heapcon. A web-based VR experience which uses real-time sensor data from a Nordic Thingy, a small multi-sensor device accessible via Bluetooth Low Energy. The virtual world adapts to the data from the physical world.
- Requires a browser and device which supports Web Bluetooth.
- Switch on the Nordic Thingy and press the 'Connect' button.
- After a few seconds, live data from the Thingy should become visible on the right hand side of the page.
- The amount of rain is linked to the real-world humidity percentage that we obtain from the Thingy
- To see the adaptive lighting, try holding the bottom of the Thingy up to a window, or shine a torch under it.
- Tilt the Thingy backwards and forwards to make the parrot nod up and down.
- Press the button to make the parrot sqwawk!
