What the heck is VR Pong?

That's an awesome question and I should know because I wrote it. VR Pong is a little project started by Una Kravets and Mike Riethmuller to have some fun, learn about WebVR and hopefully make something cool. It's like that game you might have played as a kid where you write one line of a story and someone else…

On the technical side I learnt about setting up a project with A-Frame and building scenes using components, entities, primitives and assets. On the creative side I explored using limited pallets and fine tuned the animations and reflections.
