Next Meetup

3Dcamp Dublin AR / VR meetup
Registration *ONLY* through Eventbrite. https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/3dcamp-dublin-irish-vr-meetup-tickets-49600494414 Our October meetup will feature presentations, demos and discussions. More details to follow soon but our first two presentations and our first three demos have been announced - (1) UNITED NATIONS MINE ACTION SERVICE - VR EXPERIENCE The UNMAS (United Nations Mine Action Service) mission in Somalia primarily focuses around counter IED (improvised explosive device) training for soldiers in the AMSOM (African Union Mission in Somalia) with a view to reopening MSR (Main supply routes) to FOBs (Forward operating bases). In March 2018 VRAI travelled to Somalia to make a VR experience for UNMAS. "The end result is a tension-filled experience that tests the observation skills, patience and leadership of those willing to take the challenge." Niall Campion, founder at VRAI, will talk about why VR made sense for UNMAS, the challenges of filming in a war zone and how VRAI managed to deliver this compelling experience in a mere 6 weeks. (2) VR & AR IN COMMERCIAL MANUFACTURING Sam Del Greco will be giving a whistle stop tour of the work he has been doing with Irish Manufacturing Research. Over the last 2 years he has been working with manufacturing facilities across Ireland, reviewing their uptake of the technology, and evaluating where it can deliver real operational value. This is with manufacturing companies sized from sub 10 employees, through to multinationals and across a range of manufacturing sectors including pharma, medical devices and precision engineering. During 15 years producing bespoke software for the healthcare, financial and blue-chip sectors, Sam delivered software solutions to start-ups through to large multinationals. After engagements with the NHS, Credit Suisse, Vodafone, and Dell, Sam took up a position with Irish Manufacturing Research where he has been for the last 2 and a half years. Now, as the VR, AR and Machine Vision Lead at IMR, he has hands on experience with the latest available hardware and software. Sam works with the IMR member companies to evaluate, prototype or embed VR, AR and/or Machine Vision within their facilities on a project or consultancy basis. DEMO 1: VR Crime Alpha Demo "Shutter" for Oculus Rift Shutter is a Rear Window inspired interactive crime story set in 1990's Brooklyn, New York. Playing on voyeuristic tendencies, it employs unique in game photographic camera mechanics to create a twist on both traditional FPS stealth and sit down puzzle games. Player immersion is built on an emphasis of branching interactive narrative and user experience in VR. Shutter will be presented to demo in alpha stage as part of an MSc by Claire Cunningham and Donal Moran. Claire is an immersive creator and developer, her start up VRecce for the motion picture industry backed by Enterprise Ireland and an AR start up led her to win Accenture's Leader's of Tomorrow. Donal Moran is a 3D modeller and digital designer for both games and animation. DEMO 2: Volograms - Applications of Volumetric Video "Volograms is a technology startup on a mission to bring reality capture closer to everyone. Our technology uses a set of videos taken from different viewpoints and transform them into volumetric holograms, 'volograms', that can be enjoyed in Virtual and Augmented Reality. Volograms' tech puts real people and performances in VR/AR, enabling more immersive and attractive experiences and applications. Our 'volograms' work with any VR/AR headset, mobile devices, and can be even integrated with Snapchat and Facebook AR platforms." DEMO 3: myAccessHub - using VR to eliminate workplace barriers for employees with neurodiversities
