Demo Day and preHackathon!

Timetable:

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!
Daan

    I had an awesome time!
    I noticed many of you don't know about some interesting things for your DK2 (like screen protectors or adjusters) so I just want to tell you that I gather tips/tricks on this page: http://www.puckstar.com/oculus-...­

    Hi All. Came across this hackathon just now. Curious when the hackathon itself will take place, unfortunally can't be there on coming pre-hackathon meeting.

      Cool, thnx. Got a DK1 & 2 I'll bring along, maybe Kinect 2 also

      If it's after my holiday I will join and bring DK1 & Dk2, leap and hopefully MYO and Stem...depending on delivery date

    I would like to go to the hackathon as well. Pre-hackathon is not an option for me either.. So just joined, and probably will be updated as a date is set right?

    • daankip

      Yes, as soon as i know the date i'll put it up on this meetup page. If you know any other developers who might want to join could you let them join this group as well?

      Just got word from Jeroen/Marald, and am interested in having some Oculus/Kinect/Leap fun at the Hackathon too. Even though 12hours sounds a bit short :)

    Just put up the timetable! If you have a DK1 or DK2 and laptop please bring your gear and some cool demo's! :)

    Is there already some kind of agenda?
    I'm not sure I will join the prehackathon groups, but I do want to be there and talk about VR with you guys and play demo's.
    How many pc's and DK2's are gonna be there? Is it helpful if I bring my DK2?

    September 24

    • Lukas

      only an old laptop on which i'm sure it will not work with, and a large desktop pc which is very difficult to bring. So I'll just bring the DK2. A friend will also come and will bring his laptop + DK2!

      2 · September 24

    • Lukas

      my friend (Timon Kuik) who is also coming will bring a Kinect and Hydra Razers!

    If anyone has these Narrow IPD adjusters (http://www.shapeways.com/model/...­) please bring them and find me at the event. I really want to try them. Lukas / PuckStar

    Is there a chance of just stopping by (seeing this event is around the corner of my house) and seeing if there is room for one more? Even though I just joined the waiting list, hope so :)

    September 25

  • Lukas

    is there nearby "cheap" parking?

    September 24

    • daankip

      Easy parking is at QPark tesselschadestraat 1G, thats very near leidseplein. Parking in Amsterdam is per definition not cheap ;)

      September 24

    • Bert H.

      On Sunday you can park for free just outside the center. For instance go to the Overtoom and take tram 1 to Leidseplein. It will save you a lot of money!

  • Joris M.

    Misschien leuk als je toevallig volgende maand in de US bent: http://vrhackathon.com­

  • Darius

    Right now we're working hard on our mobile Live For Speed Experience setup. Sunday it will have it's first test run in Amsterdam. Looking forward to seeing you all :-)

    • daankip

      Very curious about this! Looking forward to see you guys again. Let me know when you arrive, you can unload your gear at the side entrance of stadsschouwburg, ill help!

      September 24

  • Cog

    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.

    • daankip

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

      September 22

    • Rik van O.

      I'll try to bring my DK2 in as early as possible, depending on the train schedule (From Breda area). I suppose there'll be enough time to set up some smaller demos; just install the Bilago VR-manager, Make Primary Monitor (OH NO! Software). I'll bring a usb-stick with some of the more popular demos and their vr-profiles, and I guess we can get it set up in a few minutes.

      September 23

  • 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.

    September 9

    • Niek J.

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

      September 22

    • martijn o.

      Wij hebben ook een DK2, voor het geval dat iemand er een nodig heeft

      September 23

  • Varvino

    Weten jullie ook welke demos te bezichtigen zijn?

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

    September 1

    • Rik van O.

      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.

      Thx Rik, goede tip! URL naar Bilago forumthread hier: http://tinyurl.com/ou...­

    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: http://www.meetup.com/Dutch-VR-...­. 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).

    • daankip

      Too bad you can't make it Daan, you will be missed! :)

      Next time! Otherwise, see you in the verse ;)
