The hand-tracking assignment was primarily executed using the Unity game engine.

The Meta Quest 2 headset was used and hand-tracking in VR was implemented using the Oculus Integration SDK.


The app explores the following interactions:

Timeline & Mentorship

Conceptualised, planned, designed and developed between 27 Jan 2023 and 8 Feb 2023.

The project was mentored by Maurice Schleussinger.


Potential value provided:

  • Playground with pizza making as a channel for creative experimentation
  • Example of VR as a medium for learning a physical craft
  • Development of hand-eye coordination


The significant take-aways were:

  • Importance of Visual and Audio feedback
  • Signifiers and Affordances need to be considered
  • The craft, medium and the interactions, impact each other
