Fugio Friday – German translation

Happy Fugio Friday!

This week I was showing my Fugio based virtual reality experience at Oxford’s Museum of the History of Science as part of British Science Week.

While we’ve shown it several times before, this was an updated version that used an Arduino and DC motor shield to blow different smells towards the person in VR, using the timeline to synchronise it to the visual experience!

You can read more about it, and see some photos, here.

This week we also have our first language translation thanks to R. Kuster. If Fugio detects it’s running on a German system, it should load the translations automatically.

Additionally you may notice some other languages are partially supported here and there, as I’ve now included the translation files for the Qt framework.

I’ll be writing a translator guide soon if you’re interested in helping translate Fugio into other languages in the future. ┬áIf you’re happy with doing pull requests on GitHub, you can get to it right now!
