    Anyone have a promo code for Oculus Connect?

  • Bjarne R.

    I would really like to speak to someone who is building virtual worlds while I am in the Bay Area. I never made it off the waiting list last Thursday. Can I get anyone a coffee or a beer for a chat?
    We're doing a customisable avatar system for virtual worlds http://vostopia.com/developer­ and I would love to learn more about what is important to world builders.

      August 6

    • Zsuzsa J.

      ... tho after seeing its potential promotional use cases, we may have to re-evaluate that ;)

  • Zsuzsa J.

    A huge thank you from my part to Karl and the other organizers as well! It was great seeing what the VR community is up to and looking forward to more awesome projects in the future (and if we get a playable demo together, then showing our game as well). In the meantime, if you want to know more about pollengame.com don't hesitate to reach out to me at [masked]

    Cheers,

    Another great meet up. Great job Karl, Bruce, Nana and all the presenters as well. Sorry for the technical difficulties with my demo, but I really appreciate everyone's patience and feedback.

    Always a great time, awesome people!

    August 7

  • Jon O.

    I will be there. I'll bring my DK2 and laptop.. I don't have many demos up and running yet...

    And I need to say my wife is awesome for encouraging me to go despite our anniversary. :)

    Also, if you can't go tonight at 7, watch Mythbusters because I was in the episode! (well... kinda.. I was driving a car...)

    August 7

    • Tomislav C.

      Its a trap! Your going to get it when you get home tonight. Hahaha

      1 · August 7

    • Jon O.

      The thought had crossed my mind. :)

      August 7

  • Sandeep M

    Sorry to cancel, my slot in waiting list opened up just now; thought I wouldn't make it and made different plans for today. Looks like great event, next time!

    August 7

  • OlivierJT

    Any chance to have the event or part of it streamed somewhere ? I would like to VR attend the Event !

    August 7

    • OlivierJT

      Don't mind the complainers ^_^

      August 7

    • OlivierJT

      at least I will go to bed before 4am then...

      August 7

  • Lissanthea T.

    So sorry to cancel last minute - looks like a great event!

    August 7

  • Timothy A.

    How many attendees have not used a DK2 or DK1 for that matter? I'm going to be running demos for a while so creating a waiting list would be helpful as I want those whom have never experienced VR at all at the top of the list :P

    August 6

    • Oz B.

      I'm very interested in trying any kind of VR!

      August 7

    • Raanan B.

      I haven't used DK2 yet -- would be great to go through a demo. Thanks.

      August 7

  • Vibhor K.

    Hey guys, I'm really excited about this event! I've been a huge fan of VR and immersion since I was a kid, and it's great to see the industry taking off like this. Now that I'm older, I really want to get involved and it would be great to get to meet some of you!

    August 7

  • OlivierJT

    Bonjour Everyone !
    Synthesis Universe will be there with -Dash- in Alpha version.
    Presented in partnership with Stompz.
    Get ready to Dash !
    I look forward to your feedback, please visit Matt to try -Dash-
    I will not be there personally (I am in France), but my heart will !

    2 · August 6

    • OlivierJT

      It's made with UE4 4.3 so in theory it should, but Matt has only a DK1, and because the driver are a mess right now, I haven't do DK2 specifics. I guess I am always waiting for something : VR input or VR drivers ! ^_^

      August 7

    • Timothy A.

      I feel your pain there! I can't wait for both the next SDK and hopefully full UE4 integration.

      August 7

  • Ed M.

    Our Flights have been delayed, afraid we cant make this one :( Good luck SVVR #12! We will be in SF the day after if anyone fancies a hands on with out latest prototypes.

    August 7

  • Nana U.

    PLEASE update your RSVP if you can no longer attend tonight's event so you don't prevent someone else from attending.

    Thank you for your help!

    August 7

  • Rafael Muñoz V.

    So, any chance this late that we in the wait list can attend?

    August 7

    • Karl K.

      We do get a lot of updates in the last day so watch your email. Meetup will update you if space opens up.

      August 7

  • John M.

    HI all, Seebright will be attending with a demo kit and some early information on upcoming news. I'll be there myself. Really looking forward to seeing everyone again.

    We are looking to hire talented developers with expertise in iOs, Android or Vision. Approach me tonight if you're interested.

    3 · August 7

  • Tristan

    Unable to make it tonight, so I changed my RSVP. Have a good time!

    I cannot make it after all so changed my RSVP. Hopefully it is not too late and someone else can get in.

    August 7

  • Adam X.

    Cannot make it today. Free spot for people on waiting list.

    August 7

  • OlivierJT

    Will SVVR be streamed somewhere ? That will be nice, so I (and others) could Virtually attend !
    In Riftmax would be perfect !

    August 7

  • Tom

    Quick question, I had RSVPd to tomorrow's event and was in the accepted list. I added a +1 and now I'm listed in the waiting list. Is it just my +1 in the waiting list or am I too?

    August 6

  • Brian B.

    Cant make it after all. I have to work late tomorrow. See everyone next time.

    August 6

  • Ryan H.

      August 6

  • Jon O.

    Argh.. it's my 20th Anniversary weekend. I am tentative at best. Too bad as I'm hoping to have my Kinect 2 and DK2(?) working together. I hate missing SVVR meetups. Would it be romantic enough to bring my wife for our anniversary? :)

    2 · July 14

    • Manoj P.

      Jon, depends: how comfortable is your couch if you have to be there for a few weeks?

      2 · August 6

  • Brian B.

    1 · August 1

  • Karl K.

    It seems a number of us received our Oculus Rift DK2s yesterday, so you can expect plenty of opportunities to try it out for yourself!

    July 29

    • Jonathan A.

      Awesome looking forward to trying it!:-)

      July 29

  • Dave A.

    Got DK2 this morning. No luck in getting it to work. Anyone else with issues? Maybe we should have a meetup just about this stuff?

    July 28

  • Timothy A.

    Just got a notice about DK2 so will be bringing that along with EVERY possible demo\game\experience that supports it by then.

    1 · July 22

  • Nicole R.

    I can bring a Jaunt VR demo. I could see if our CEO wants to come speak as well if folks are interested!

    2 · July 22

    • Timothy A.

      July 22

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
