  • Update; hi All! 
    We've decided to push the hackaton a bit further back to the end of this year, because quite a few of our community members will be in Los Angeles (Oculus Connect) the weekend before, which leaves us too little time to fully prepare for a 12hr Hackaton. What we are going to do though is a preHackaton, we will choose a project from the top 3 and will form teams, gather feedback, identify the needed skillsets and people who want to participate at the day of the actual hackaton. 

    What we're also going to do is have an awesome demo day, where both vr developers and vr enthusiasts will gather and show each other the potential virtual reality has! If you have anything to demo and i haven't contacted you yet, please feel free to message me here on meetup or send me a mail to [masked]!
    I will list the participating developers and demo's next week and am still trying to arrange one or two inspirational speakers, haven't succeeded in this yet so if anyone of you knows someone in VR willing to share something cool with our community let me know as well?

    We'll end the day with having pizza's and beer, and the location for this meetup couldn't be better and more beautiful. So hope to see many of you Sunday the 28th!


    All the way from Mountain View California, Google Cardboards arrived for us to use at this meetup! So everyone bring an android phone if you have one and lets have some fun with them. Big thanks to Google for the contribution!!!

    I have a brand new overclocked GTX780TI system built for VR should be here by the meeting and kick out the FPS for a DK2. But too big to bring on my bike. Can someone drive me there and back and I'll bring it? I am in Amsteram near Prinsen Island.

      Cog, Does your rig still need a ride? I have a car and could drive it up and down. Do you have an Oculus too? or do we need to arrange one?

      Rik van Oostende has a DK2 perhaps you and cog could team up and give some demo's?

  • Rik van O.

    Even een vraagje voor de organisatie: is er voor de 28e nog behoefte aan DK2's om te gebruiken voor demo's? Ik kan mijn systeem niet meenemen, maar als we nog een DK2 nodig hebben kan ik de mijne meenemen.

      Komt in orde :)

      Daan, kunnen we jouw DK2 aan Cog's rig pluggen? (zie hierboven).

    Weten jullie ook welke demos te bezichtigen zijn?

    Ik zou graag met een aantal mensen uit mijn Game Artist klas willen komen.

      Hoi, ik heb misschien nog een suggestie. Ik heb met het geven van demo's voor familie en vrienden goede ervaringen met Bilago's VR Manager. Daarmee kun je zonder instellingen aan te passen meer dan tien verschillende demo's achter elkaar showen, zoals Sightline, Helix, etc.

    Copy/paste from the other meetup reply thread:

    Hey all, for everyone wanting to keep talking, did you know there is a discussion forum? It's pretty obvious as it's the fourth button up there ^ but here's a direct link for you:­. Could be nice to keep in contact, share cool stuff or organise (themed?) mini-meetups. See you there, I'll be starting off with a thread about something that will blow your mind ;)

    3 · August 4

  • Daan K.

    Have fun guys, too bad I can't be there (I'm in Sofia, Bulgaria that weekend for WordCamp Europe).
