    Reminder for those off-meetup. Water main break was fixed! It's happening at The Sawmill for sure. Please update your RSVPs if you can't go, we have to reasonably enforce limits on people in the space, and if you're not showing up then someone is missing out. Lets maximize the VR celebrations!

    After Oculus Connect I'm headed to Houston for a couple days and won't be back for the 22nd :(
    Seriously though, I'll catch you next time.

    I will be bringing an Oculus DK2 with Leap Motion attached. You can see your VR hands in an augmented reality IR pass-thru mode. Really interesting experience!

    Worth doing a bit of R&D on a user interface design where hands can pass outside the field of view and loose tracking. But when inside the field of view, the hand tracking is getting good enough to use.
