HTC Vive Guide Bot (3D Model)
The Vive Demo Booth is a VR application that will be installed into shops and public spaces, which will show the public how to use the HTC Vive and demo some of the existing games and applications.

I worked with Triangular Pixels on this project and was responsible for the design and creation of a 3D “Robot” guide, who talks to the user and helps the player in VR. 

HTC really liked the final character and mentioned they hope to use it as a company mascot in the future.

Some of the initial designs for the guide bot
After initial drawings, the design was created and refined in 3D. Above are the two stages the design took before being retopologised and textured.
Above is a breakdown of each of the textures that make up the material, and the low poly mesh, suitable for running in Unity and VR.
After the final model was completed, I created animations and VFX to help bring the bot to life. These were setup in unity to trigger based upon events in the app.
