How to Create a VR Experiment in 15 Minutes with Vizard VR Software

October 12, 2022

Have you watched our video tutorial on how to create a VR experiment in 15 minutes? It is popular for a reason. For many researchers, it has opened the doors to adopting virtual reality for their scientific studies.

Creating a VR experiment in 15 minutes may sound impossible to some readers. But in our popular Vizard video tutorial, we show how it’s done. Step by step you learn how easy it is to set up a scene in VR with Vizard, our Python based VR software for researchers. In just a few short segments, you discover how to import 3D models from Sketchfab, adjust their position, scale, and lighting, how to set up a scene, interact with objects, and how to collect user data. And with that you hold the key not only to adopting VR for your research, but to a Python based scripting platform that is used successfully by students, faculty and professionals alike in many universities and businesses around the world.

Vizard makes it easy to build immersive, interactive VR applications for performing human behavioral data analytics. Vizard 7 lets you leverage the latest Python 3.8 open source libraries that are widely used by the research community, all wrapped into a friendly and open user interface. Vizard VR applications are supported by a range of VR devices and sensors that let you deploy an experiment in no time. In addition, Vizard 7 includes avatar and 3D art workflows to allow for easy integrations across a wide range of 3D model creation programs and online content libraries.

But there’s more to adopting VR for your research. We recently published an updated guide on how to set up a VR lab that walks you through the process for conceptualizing a VR lab that sets you up for long-term success. On top of that, we created a VR lab budgeting guide that discusses cost considerations for VR hardware, software and application development for scientists looking to start or upgrade their VR research lab.

Lastly, we want to make you aware of our video tutorial on how to create a VR eye tracking experiment, using our SightLab VR software. This simple yet powerful extension to our Vizard software allows you to create virtual reality eye tracking experiments and harness your data with ease. SightLab VR Pro Multi-User even supports up to five users at a time for more complex VR eye tracking data analytics experiments, including modifiable scripts to show gaze intersect points for each user.

Every year, WorldViz publishes a report of hundreds of research publications that utilize WorldViz products. Whether you’re a researcher or working in enterprise, we invite you to find out more about leading VR research and see how you can benefit.
