Description: Audio Factory is a VR experience (Daydream port) showcasing spatial audio capabilities of the Resonance Audio SDK by Google. Work your way through each factory floor to experience evocative sound design, compelling visuals, and fun interactive tasks. Experience how spatial audio contributes to the VR immersion. This is a Daydream port and visualizes the Daydream controller by mapping controls to the Vive and Oculus Touch controllers. Note: Wired headphones required (Bluetooth headphones not supported due to their increased latency).
Review: This interactive experience from Google might have a low budget flat ascetic look to itself, but this is all about the audio SDK and 3D surround sound. Floor by floor Audio Factory keeps you immersed fully in its audio world and you get to the point in which you are excited to see what the next floor holds. It doesn’t last all that long, but for about 10 minutes you will be taken away from it all and for free. This is one of those experiences that you show your friends and family as it is the perfect example of why VR is so cool.
