I remodeled Dr. King's virtual avatar using Autodesk Maya. Using Unity Game Engine, I updated the virtual reality experience with the new avatar and added new features to enhance the user experience. We are currently working to implement subtitles into the virtual reality and pedagogical experience at N.C. State University Libraries.
A unique feature added to the VR experience is the ability for participants to instantly transition between different locations within the santuary or move around freely. 360 spatial audio automatically adjust the speech based on the participant's location.
