v0.22.0 - Bigscreen adds 4 new environments!

Today's update adds 4 new "daytime" environments : the Living Room, South Balcony, Kitchen, and Side Room

ICYMI, other recent updates include the Avatar Update and the Cinema Update

Additional bug fixes and modifications in today's update:
- Improved the interaction design and made it easier to poke the Tablet UI using the laser pointer/stylus
- Improved the avatar creator . Shirts/customizations can be applied by dropping it on your body.
- Improved the virtual keyboard
- Fixed LeapMotion support


Some people have asked about how to interact with the Bigscreen Tablet, monitor, etc. There are now 3 interaction methods . Note: if you liked the old way of interacting with Bigscreen UI, you still can do that. It hasn't changed, we've only added new methods to make it easier for others.

Laser (our "original" interaction setup): point at the Tablet or monitor and trigger/A. Your hand turns into a laser pointer, and you can now interact with the Tablet/monitor/etc. from a distance.

Finger Poke (new): hold the grip to make an "trigger" finger 👉 and poke

Stylus Poke (new): using the laser pointer/stylus, poke the buttons

There are still several bugs and performance issues we are working on fixing. Please keep reporting your bugs and help us out!

The Avatar Update - v0.20.0 - Live now!

We’re excited to launch our latest release, The Avatar Update!

Avatars now have torsos with 7 body shapes (3 masculine shapes, 3 feminine shapes, 1 neutral) that are designed to be inclusive and comfortable for everyone.

Avatar torsos can be further customized with hundreds of shirts, including button down shirts, jackets, suits, T-shirts, tank tops, and hoodies.

This update is also major design overhaul, greatly improving the interaction design when using controllers like HTC Vive, Oculus Touch, and Windows Mixed Reality.

The Tablet UI and the virtual keyboard now support “poking” allowing users to easily and intuitively interact with the world, by physically/directly poking with the VR controller.

Bigscreen monitors now have a menu bar with shortcuts to quickly and easily adjust the monitors. For example, it’s now just one click to easily enable Side-by-Side 3D.

We improved and added new interactive tools, like a new selfie stick and a laser pointer.

Thanks to Reddit users reporting bugs and performance issues, we’ve discovered and fixed key bugs that were causing instability on AMD graphics cards. This update greatly improves stability and performance.

Stay tuned and keep sending bug reports! Join our Bigscreen Community Discord server to chat with us.
