Welcome
MIUIers to another Tech Wednesday.

Today's Tech Wednesday is about a person who planned his holidays in a VR. Yeah it is true, he planned his holiday trip in a VR without going anywhere. Interesting?

When most people fancy a vacation, they pack up their suitcase and go somewhere warm like Barbados. Not Bastiaan Hooimeijer, who goes by the name "Naam" online. Instead, he built his own holiday spot inside virtual reality. The result crafted using Google Blocks isn't an idyllic beach or a villa hidden in the French Riviera. It's a small caravan in a poky piece of land surrounded by piles of discarded junk. The world is bright and colorful, but it's not the sort of place that Lonely Planet would send one of its travel writers.

With some virtual-reality hardware, including a pair of wand-style controllers, you can pick up everyday objects and quickly teleport over short distances. "I'm not a vacation kind of guy," Naam explains. "I never go anywhere, but I do have some escapist urges." There's plenty to see and do. You can wander to a small river, for instance, and prod some waterlilies with a stick, or check the post box and sift through the mail while cars hurtle past. If you're feeling cold, you can strike a match and light the caravan's wood burner, or bash at a typewriter with the grace of the Incredible Hulk.

Google released Blocks, a 3D modeling application for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, in July 2017. It's a free piece of software aimed at developers and artists who want to quickly build custom objects. The app lets you insert, manipulate and color 3D shapes, or "blocks," to create something entirely new. Grab a cone and a few multicolored spheres, for instance, and you soon have an ice cream that's ready to be exported into a larger scene.

Naam had been toying with the idea of a virtual caravan for a few years. He decided to take a vacation and spent the time off modeling his dream camper in Blocks. The animator liked the tool because its angular, low-poly aesthetic fit with his own drawing style. "There was some magic click that I had with the app," he said. Sculpting in VR also made it easier to judge scale. With traditional 3D modeling software, you have to estimate size on-screen and then check if it feels right in VR.
