3D Print of the Week

3D print of the week: virtual reality headset

This week’s featured 3D print is a VR headset used to create a VR videogame. Maggie Prendergast, Bioengineering PhD Student at Penn, mentored a middle school student as part of the Spark mentoring program.  With Maggie’s guidance, the student used free Tinkercad software to design the headset and free Unity3D software to design the game.
