The VRTK Mission
VRTK is a collection of useful, reusable solutions to common problems found when building for virtual reality. VRTK aims to help productivity by speeding up the creation process from prototyping ideas to building complete solutions.
The passion behind VRTK is to try and enable as many people as possible to build for VR, from seasoned developers to complete beginners who have a wonderful idea in their head but are unsure of how to create it. VRTK aims to be easy to understand so the absolute beginner can feel comfortable turning their creative thoughts into experiences but it also has enough power and flexibility to allow developers to really build out their perfect solution with little friction and without constantly re-inventing the wheel.
Virtual reality is a relatively new medium so no one really understands what truly works or what doesn't work in terms of solutions, so VRTK aims to bring a community of diverse people from all across the world together to work on solving these problems and to rapidly evolve the way in how VR is catered for.
VRTK is released under the MIT License and therefore is completely free for anyone to use whether it's for personal or commercial products as this is the best way to make sure we're all building for a better future in virtual reality.
