Getting Started: Escape The Room VR

In my first night of development I was able to make some solid progress. I created a small room and placed the player in the center. I made a key and put it in the corner for the player to “pick up”. I made a door that will open when you bring the key to it. I just need to finish programming the event handlers that allow the VR Gaze to click on an object. I’m following this tutorial for the VR Interaction methods https://unity3d.com/learn/tutorials/topics/virtual-reality/interaction-vr?playlist=22946

I plan to get the interaction mechanics finished in the next few days. I’ll update after I’ve made more progress!
