Well it's time for our August VR Developers Meetup @ the Devnuts Hackerspace once more. A place where Enthusiasts, Developers, and Passionate Designers can share VR/AR tech.

The itinerary for the night will be:

• 7pm : Meet and great, snacks and beverages will be supplied.

• 7:30 pm: Guest speakers for the night

Thomas Sharpless - retired S/W engineer and member of the International VR Photography Association will be discussing the use of practical spherical photography.

Eric Greenbaum - VR developer, Founder of NYC VR, and patent attorney. He will be discussing the importance of ergonomics and Hygiene for HMD's and his work in accessories to improve user experiences

Rahat Ahmed - Investor/ strategist. Recent project has been Trinity Magnum.

*This is a free event but there will be a donation bucket available if you would like to help offset the cost of future events.


_____________________________________________________________________

More information coming in the next few days as we wait back on a few confirmations. Also, as you are aware the DK2 is still shipping to day one purchasers so if possible you are the lucky few that has received their kit, please contact event hosts if possible about bringing your DK2 to the event. We will have a few demo stations available that can use them with demos already downloaded for use.

After the presentations, there will be about 3 hours of networking time. There will be at least a few demo stations for people to try VR experiences and give the developers valuable feedback. If you have a project/game that you'd like to demo, bring your rig and whatever other equipment you will need and you're all set! We hope that we can keep a strong group going forward from here out on our monthly meetups.

    I really hope I can go to the next one. My spam filter blocked me from seeing this was going to happen until I caught the story on road to vr the day of.

      Not a problem. I have got several contacts from the group stating when I sent out emails they showed up in spam filters.

    Any other VR photographers on this list? I'd be willing to do a short workshop on how to make spherical panoramas, if there is interest.

      I'm also not a photographer, but I would be interested in that, too!

    I can bring my DK1 and demo project but sadly I have yet to receive my DK2. It's built around positional tracking so I wish I could show the full extent of the demo, but that'll have to wait for another time.

    Something family related came up and I won't be able to make it. Any chance that notes/video of the meetup will be taken?

  • Tyler R.

    Hey guys, just a reminder that meetup #2 is tonight, at 7 PM! I hope you're all ready to experience virtual reality, specifically the DK2. :) We only have two of them because of some last minute hiccups, so we are wondering if anybody is willing to bring their DK2, it would benefit the whole group. You won't have to demo as James has a rig and would be able to demo it. Thanks and see you all later!

    I'm curious; I'm new to the area and have yet to go anywhere in Philadelphia besides the airport. How's parking for the event?

    August 17

    • James M.

      Our last meet parking was very easy to find right in front of the building.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
