    Terrific material! I was blown away with the facial mapping. The intros to what to do & not do in VR were good. Apart from the facial mapping, however, there was a slight lack of focus & I miss dead-tree handouts, business cards, etc. The intro for the various speakers also often failed to provide linking material such as name, company, etc. - or did so just once or twice, at a low volume. A slide with that INFO should appear before the intro starts & stay up long enough for people to shoot or copy with pen & paper.

    Also, the unmentioned elephant at OCVR is intellectual property. BREAKING NEWS on that front is the Supreme Court decision of the 19th - Thursday: http://www.schwabe.com/showarticle.aspx?Show=13249

    I suggest a committee to investigate how we can handle the issue in such a way that people can feel free to discuss new & original material about VR without having to worry about losing the rights to a patent troll. Maybe a membership agreement? Legal speaker?

      Thank you for the feedback Transformer. The info about each speaker and a link to their respective sites is available on this page under the meetup description. However, I will be sure to include it in my intros at future events if you would like to write it down.

    Directions and parking info:

    There is no entrance to the office park directly from Jamboree Rd- you must enter from SE Bristol St or Bayview Way.

    There is a parking structure in the office park directly across from the 3501 building. We will have signs directing you to elevators up to Sleepy Giant's beautiful office.

    Excited to see you all tonight!
