Building Virtual Worlds(BVW) is about creating a new world in two weeks or even one week. Typically the world will be a game or experience that focus on a certain theme. Every year of BVW, every student will create 5 worlds in 10 weeks. The most cutting edge platforms are being used in BVW, some examples in 2015: Oculus Rift DK2, Leap Motion, Myo armband, Microsoft Kinect 2.

And here are my projects from BVW 2015.
