Specifically, we dive into their Audio Visualizer and some of the design decisions that were made because of user testing. We also talk a bit about community building how that is super important for VR to thrive. Really great talking with them and cannot wait to see more!

A while back I saw a really cool type of portal gun on Reddit where items go in one portal and out the other for the HTC Vive (https://gfycat.com/PartialJubilantAfricanpiedkingfisher). Pretty simple to implement, but oh is it ever so satisfying to wield. In this tutorial for SteamVR, we will show you how to simply move objects from one hand to another while maintaining velocity, how to write a neat ripple shader that creates ripples on the portal surface, and controlling that shader to only respond when it gets hit!
