Good Day

MatrixI was traveling for work yesterday but today I came in to see my monitor and computer set up, I still need all of my software loaded onto the machine but one step closer and now it is here with me. I also got an update that my 360 cameras are in route to me so that makes me happy too. Another step closer to making some AWESOME content. Baby steps but steps none the less.

Screaming at the Gods

August 21, 2015 Leave a comment

HulkI don’t know which gods I need to leave tribute around here in order to get my supplies. Somehow I still wait for computer, monitor and slew of other items in order to R&D and develop. I believe the gods are laughing at me and all I feel like is the Hulk screaming in frustration. The amount of process I deal with is enough to drive me insane. All I want to do is develop and design. HULK SMASH!!!

Leap Motion

leap-motion-controllerWell while I wait impatiently for other things to arrive I can at least rejoice in the fact that I will get to unbox the Leap Motion and the VR Workstation today. Hopefully the monitor will arrive as well. We will see. Looking forward to what fun and wacky things we can develop with the hand tracking.

Playing Around with the Gear VR

August 12, 2015 Leave a comment

MatrixGot 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 done a good job with multiple navigation and selection options. Bad VR is bad VR no matter the platform. After a few hours I had to stop because I was getting a little sick from a few bad experiences. Walking around and shaking it off is my best solution. It does kind of stick with you for a while which can be an issue. Still very happy with this device and glad I will be working with it. Great early entry to Virtual Reality. Looking forward to the commercial version which will hopefully be out this year.

I Lied

MatrixNot on purpose but I totally lied. Yesterday was not the day I would try out the Gear VR. It took forever to download all the apps and then I had to redownload the Oculus app so it would all work. Once I had everything downloading I still had to bring the device home with me to finish downloading. Another pain here in India is the slow speed of internet. Takes forever. Especially when some of these apps are a couple gigs. So today after I do a presentation or two internally I will get to play around with the Gear VR.

Today is the day: Gear VR

Gear VRSo after a lot of hoop jumping, traveling to other countries, and changing of firmware today I will be trying out the Gear VR. I’ve got a list of apps I want to check out and I am super excited. I have a few must see pieces like the Cirque apps. I have my work around to use the Milk app. Hopefully lots to report this week.
