Community Made Tools & Projects
Quick overview of community made tools & projects!
The Looking Glass community makes a ton of awesome tools, plugins and projects that while aren't officially supported by Looking Glass Factory, are totally awesome!! We've cataloged a few projects here.
Given that these are not official Looking Glass applications, we can’t guarantee all of these community made tools will work with every platform on every Looking Glass. But they are awesome and if you’ve questions, hop on Discord and chat with the creators themselves!
note: currently web tools require a browser like chrome or firefox, and do not work in safari.
Masuji Suto, creator of StereoPhotoMaker, has also made a series of web tools for importing various kinds of holographic media, including 180 degree photos, horizontal shift videos, 3D Models and more! You can check them out here! http://stereo.jpn.org/lkg/indexe.html
HoloPlay - p5.js allows you to use the P5.js library to create 3D visuals using 2D layers placed in 3D space. This web tool sends quilts directly to HoloPlay Service.
