A lot actually!
It’s been a busy fall at Digital Den, and here are some of the highlights…
The development studio has finally come together and is now all setup and working.
Nathaniel has also just received his Oculus Rift DK2, yeah!
We are currently in the preliminary phases of defining our first fun “demo” in Unity for the Rift, and work on that will get underway in the coming months.
Out and about…
There has been a lot happening on the VR scene in general and especially locally.
The Boston VR Meetup hosted a visit by Jaunt VR at Hack/Reduce on October 15th.
They demonstrated their new 360 video technology and showed demons on the Rift.
Other members of the Meetup also showed off their newest work too.
Then the Boston Unity Group hosted Ray Brierly at the MIT Stata Center.
His entertaining and informative presentation, Sensory Input – Making Games That Can See, Hear and Feel, explored some of the more unconventional ways to get input into Unity (e.g. Motion controls, camera and audio input). His fun demo of a Twitter feed “3D blocks” visualization was definitely a major hit!
Finally, just today, October 28th, Condition One officially launched their first VR documentary for the Rift entitled Zero Point, and it looks like it could be a real game changer. You can read a Mashable story about the release here. If you have a Rift, this is a definite “must see!” Check it out on Steam here!
So, it’s been a busy and exciting October, and November is shaping up to be even better!
Please stay tuned…
