What is React VR

React VR uses Three.js  to support the lower-level WebVR  and WebGL APIs

Three.js & WebGL

Three.js is a JavaScript library for displaying 3d graphics in the browser.

WebGL - JS Api for rendering 3D graphics in browser without any plugins

WebVR

Experimental JS api on top of WebGL to interact with virtual reality devices

Transforms

    transform: [
      {rotateZ : this.state.rotation},
      {translate: [0, 2, 0]},
      {scale : 0.01 },
    ],
  }}
style={{
   transform: [
     {matrix : [0.01,0,0,0, 0,0.01,0,0, 0,0,0.01,0, 3,2,0,1]},
   ],
}}

Models and lights

          <Model style={{
              transform: [
              { translate: [10, -20, 5 ]},
              {scale: 0.2 }
            ]}} source={{
              obj:asset('castle.obj'),
              mtl:asset('castle.mtl'),
            }} lit={true} />
