Oculus Rift DK2's have arrived! :)

This month we'll be diving into the latest apps the DK2 has to offer, sharing how to make apps using Unity, demoing our upcoming app in DK2 beauty, and brainstorming about VR. As always, open if you have any topics you'd like to take on or projects to share.

Doors will open at 6pm. There will be delicious pizza and desserts. We'll have three VR stations now, so more fun for all.

Agenda:

• Kickoff

• Station 1 – Open App Requests (DK2)

• Station 2 – Cubicle Ninjas' Guided Meditation Demo (DK2)

• Station 3 – Classic Demos and Finding your IP (DK1)

• 8pm – Building your own VR experiences in Unity

Demoing VR Projects:

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.
