VRTK - From then to now to the future

Virtual Reality Toolkit VRTK is a productive toolkit for rapidly building virtual reality experiences by providing easy to use solutions to common problems. VRTK focuses on two main areas of help for developers, interactions and locomotion techniques offering a multitude of ways of solving these common problems. The goal behind VRTK is to bring as many creative people from as diverse backgrounds as possible to try and solve the common problems that the new medium of virtual reality brings. The faster solutions to these problems can be built, tried and tested will help accelerate the evolutionary process to find out what works and what doesn't work, because evolution is just a million mistakes until a bit of one thing works. The way in which VRTK empowers such a large participation is to be totally free and open source (under the MIT license) to anyone who wants to use it for any reason they want to use it for, whether it's for learning the ropes of VR development, if they

A new communication channel for VRTK

We're trialing a new way people can communicate, get help, leave help for people in the VRTK community. For a long time, the slack channel has been the place where most people go for help. But the problem with the fluid nature of online chat means many people ask the same questions over and over again without an easy way to search for common problems and solutions. So we're releasing the VRTK Discourse channel at  where people can leave messages of VRTK tips or ask for help and then hopefully the answers on there will form a knowledge base for future users.

A new VRTK website

The new VRTK website is now up at and aims to provide a general overview to VRTK and provide a single place with all the useful resources for getting the best out of VRTK. Previously, would redirect to the GitHub page if you want an easy way to remember the GitHub page then you can now use and that will take you right there! We've also added a new page showcasing all of the experiences made with VRTK and can be found at and if you want your experience on there then the whole website is completely open source and MIT License and on GitHub so you can raise a pull request with any amends to the site as you think would be beneficial! The GitHub repo for the website is at so feel free to contribute.

A new way of keeping up to date with the world of VRTK!

A new day, a new blog! So I've decided to try and engage more by trying to regularly blog about the goings on in VRTK. Things like updates to VRTK v4, new features coming, quick posts on how I've solved certain problems using VRTK... stuff like that. I'm also going to have other guests contribute to the blog of anything they find may be useful to anyone using VRTK. I'm also going to be looking at setting up new channels of communication with the VRTK community to provide better means of getting help and support on building cool stuff with VRTK. I'll post more when I have something more interesting to say :)
