Norman – WebVR tool to create frame-by-frame animations in 3D

Created by James PatersonNorman is an open-source WebVR tool to create frame-by-frame animations in 3D. Drawing inspiration and building on the work from Rhonda (2004/05), James turned to WebVR to build the tool in Javascript that runs in a web browser and lets him animate naturally in 3D using VR controllers.

To use Norman in its current form you’ll need an Oculus Rift, and to clone/run the code locally. A more comprehensive, user-friendly experience is in the works. In the meantime, you can also view & play with Norman animations at the top of using a viewer created by Dan Motzenbecker. Check out Dan's viewer source code here.
