Throwback: the first visual demo of PARA

This video clip is the first visual demo of my PARA system. It was featuring a simple helicopter model that land on a surface in front of you.

The viewer was an Oculus DK2 and the program was running in Javascript thanks to WebVR. There already was two cameras for correct stereoscopic view.

It's funny because at this time, it feels like I opted for the worst stack for the proof-of-concept: it was running on a Mac and in a browser, the whole thing written in javascript. The definition of the cameras was awful, no distortion was corrected, it was all fixed with duct tape and cardboard.

But it worked! It was in September 2016. And I'm really proud of the version we have today.
