When I was 8 years old, for a science project at school, I made a Solar System from wires, styrofoam balls, and paint. Today, 8-year olds all around the world will be able to make virtual Solar Systems in VR, especially if they read this chapter! This project creates a Cardboard VR app that simulates our Solar System. Well, maybe not with total scientific accuracy, but good enough for a kid's project and better than styrofoam balls.
In this chapter, you will create a new Solar System project with the
RenderBox library by performing the following steps:
Spherecomponent and a solid color material
Earthtexture material with lighting
