Anyhow, I’m FAR from actually getting down to writing my own OS, especially one based in a 3D environment rather than 2D monitor. So I figured the best way to at least demo this would be to make it in a game engine. So when you open up the ‘game’ instead of playing something, this will be the interface. Leaving me at two restrictions:
- Needed a Engine that supported the Rift, or at least could be tweaked to support it.
- An Engine that can emulate the programs that windows runs. ex/ Open up Chrome Window which will be on a flat plane object floating above the users head.
Ive found 3 options: Unity, Unreal Engine, and Blender. Id have to either learn Untiyscript/ C++ / python respectively.
These all work with the rift in various degrees but I need to know if its even possible to get programs to Show their window and let me Interact with them. If not Windows what about in Linux?
