Actein is a VR entertainment company. Actein VR Dashboard is a 3D virtual reality application for starting, stopping games and switching between different experiences during a VR session. Besides the standard functionality, there was a requirement to protect the system from user access from the app to the Windows environment on the HTC Vive device. However, it wasn’t designed so by HTC Corporation and required an examination for a workaround.

01Goals and Tasks

Goals and Tasks
01
Restrict user access to Windows desktop and VR dashboard overlay applications. Disable HTC Vive Controller button.

02Challenges

Challenges
01

The design and intended behavior of HTC View System button contradict the goal of the research

03Solution

Solution

Our developers performed in-depth research and analysis of the restrictions of the programmatical design of HTC Vive environment. Then they tried several approaches and tested them against HTC Vive. Eventually, we managed to implement a workaround solution that met the requirement. We found a way to re-map the System button.

04Result

Result

The client got a solution that was implemented into a production version of VR Dashboard.

Engineering practices

01
Short Iterations

With the Short Iterations technique, we deliver potentially shippable features fast, keep focused on the goas and allow for quick discovery of optimal solutions because of the tight feedback loop

02
Continuous Integration

Our engineers integrate their code into a shared repository several times a day, which benefits us with a robust workflow and better quality assurance
