Description: The Oculus Unity Sample Framework assists developers in implementing Unity applications by providing sample scenes and guidelines for common VR-specific features such as hand presence, crosshairs, driving, and first-person movement.

This download includes a Windows executable of the Sample Framework for use with the Oculus Rift. This application is available for Samsung Gear VR from the Concepts section of the Oculus Store.

Review: Oculus really are trying to make it as easy as they can to develop for the Oculus systems and this is a great tool for any budding developer who might be thinking of doing just that. But this app also helps developers to understand about VR and the way certain things like height and motion can make people feel ill, meaning it is also a good tool for people developing for other systems.

While I can’t even pretend to imagine how hard it would be to make a game or app for any system, I do know that this is a great app to start with. But be aware that this is just the very start of the development path and more for developers thinking of getting into VR rather than a Google Cardboard developer thinking of making an Oculus app.
