In this lesson, students will construct their own Google Cardboard viewer. Activities for adding artwork to the viewer and preparing it for CNC laser cutting are included.
In this lesson, students will create Stereoscopic image pairs using Adobe Photoshop techniques. Student creativity and personal expression are encouraged with the use of design briefs. Technical construction techniques for creating stereo pairs are taught using a tutorial and a project break-down.
In this culminating activity, students will create a stereoscopic slideshow and YouTube video for viewing with a Google Cardboard or other stereoscopic viewer. Students will share their work in a gallery walk. They will also give and receive constructive criticism using the "Feedback Sandwich" technique.
This lesson serves as an introduction to stereographic image making using analog techniques. With the virtual reality industry getting bigger everyday, a basic understanding of how to manipulate the perception of 3D with stereography will serve as a foundation for emerging VR content creation.
