My first encounter with Virtual Reality was at one of my previous employers. They had purchased a development kit for the Oculus Rift and we played some games on that. When I got my first teaching job we used a Vive for teaching VR development to our students.
I quickly became an advocate for VR use in our programming education and got to purchase several Head Mounted Displays(HMD). We currently have a Oculus Rift S, Oculus Quest and HP Mixed Reality headset.
Together with my students we developed several prototypes. These were relatively simple escape room concepts, using virtualized layouts of our school building. I also made several of these concepts on a personal basis. One of these you can semi experience in my portfolio.
Currently VR development is a rather low priority, since the COVID situation made it difficult to share HMD’s with multiple users.
