Scanning and Shooting

I am really looking forward to scanning environments in 3D and also shooting them in 3D 360 video. I really like the idea of having both as options for my work. Being able to step into a space and get all the footage I need and reference to take away is awesome. I think it […]

Playing Around with the Gear VR

Got in a few hours of time on the Gear VR. I have to say the quality is a good bit of a jump over Google Cardboard. i sampled a bunch of the apps that arent on cardboard a long with ones that are on both. The experience is a lot more immersive. They have […]

Real Virtuality – Siggraph 2015 Immersive Realities finalist – Gameplay footage

It is often reported that Virtual Reality is isolating and not a social or shared experience. Well this is a great example of people interacting in a shared space with the wonders of VR. Awesome work. Just shows the beginnings of where this tech is going and sooner than people think.
