OpenVR: Demos for HTC vive.
htdocs: Web pages containing the VR software and documentation.
cgi-bin: cgi scripts to create suitable config files from a material number.
More platforms will be added in the future.

-Download the installer, and install.<br/>
-Download the rar file, and decompress.<br/>
-Double click on the .ncfg file and assign to the installed program NOMADViveT.exe
-Trigger of controller 1 moves the user in the gaze direction<br/>
-Trigger of controller 2 moves the time forward (continuous)<br/>
-Side button of controller 1 moves the time backwards (discrete)<br/>
-Side button of controller 2 shows isosurfaces one-by-one, then atoms, then
everything with transparency (caveat: ).<br/>
-Menu (3 lines) button of controller 2 starts/stops recording in c:/temp.
-At the beginning of the CO<sub>2</sub>+CaO reaction, the relative densities are zero, so nothing
is shown if you press the isosurfaces button too early; if you press it by
mistake, press it again until you see the atoms, then once more for the full
-Recording: SSD advised, affects tracking negativelly<br/>
-A high-end graphics card is required.

for the issue.<br/>

Install instructions:<br/>
-Allow unsigned software in oculus
(see <a href="">here</a>).<br/>
-Install desired apk(s)<br/>
-Relative densities: download <a href="CO2-CaO-Rel.rar">CO2-CaO-Rel.rar</a> (same file as above) and decompress content in sdcard/Oculus. Rename the folder data to NOMAD and inside that,
the to CO2CaOrel to CO2-CaO-rel.<br/>
-Full densities: download <a href="CO2-CaO.rar">CO2-CaO.rar</a> (same file as above) and
decompress content in sdcard/Oculus.
Rename the folder data to NOMAD and inside that,
the to CO2-CaO-B to CO2-CaO (if the NOMAD folder already exists, you should just move
CO2-CaO-B inside the NOMAD folder before renaming).<br/>
-You may remove the .ncfg files, they are unused.<br/>
-The procedure will be simplified in the next version!
-Swipe forward to fly in the direction of gaze<br/>
-Swipe backwards to stop the movement<br/>
-Swipe up/down to go forward/backward in time<br/>
-Press back to show isosurfaces one by one (same caveat as above).
