LEAP Motion 3D Jam Entry

I'm working on an entry for the Leap Motion 3D Jam. The Earth Elevator is an educational VR experience where you take an elevator to the center to the earth. The elevator makes several stops along the way to provide you with information about each layer and time to look around.

This project builds on other work I've covered on this blog in these posts:  Using Unity native VR,  Re-centering the avatar and knowing when the health and safety warning has been dismissedSeeing your hands in VR , Hand selection UI prototype,  Raising your hand, and Thought bubbles in a Rift scene using world space canvases.

This demo requires a Rift DK2, a LEAP Motion, Windows 8 or later, and Oculus Runtime 0.7.  If you want to try it out, you can download it from the 3D Jam web site.

I'm considering adding a table with samples from each layer that you can pick up and look at a bit more closely. Don't know if I can get it done in time for the jam, though.
