In this project, the Engineering Research Facility Room 2068 of UIC is converted into an office space. The walls, floor and ceiling of the room were retained, but every other object in the room was removed. Various 3D models were added that made the space on par with some of the most amazing work environments in the world. The project was done on top of the original project that contained the design of the entire Electronics Visualizations Lab, created at UIC. Unity was the software used to create the VR world. Models created from other applications and also downloaded from online stores were imported into Unity as assets. These models were given various properties such as position, rotation, scale, etc to make them blend with the environment around them. This is to ensure that the VR environment is as immersive as possible. Models were downloaded for 3dwarehouse.sketchup.com and audios were downloaded from freesound.org. Custom models were also created with Google's SketchUp app.
To use the application, you need to have a computer setup with HTC VIVE base station. Copy the built executable file to the system and open it with Vive. You will be instantly inside the office space.
