South West Virtual Reality Group is a place for developers, tinkerers, artists, designers and anyone else to get together and experience VR, as well as learn how to make things for VR, and generally have fun.
We own two Oculus Rift Development Kits (DK1), with two more Development Kit 2s (DK2) on the way. Meetups will generally have a strong 'hands-on' approach, with VR demos and experiences to try. There will also be occasional technical and design-focused talks for those that want to build things for VR.
We aim to build a strong community of people interested in VR for people in and around the South West UK.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
