This is a group for artists, programmers, audio designers, hobbyists and general enthusiasts interested in developing experiences in VR/AR/MR. With some of the largest tech companies (Microsoft, HTC, Sony, Valve, etc..) releasing retail VR in 2016, it's officially "Gold Rush" of VR, with a predicted market of 150B by 2020.
I'm interested in learning how to develop 3D experiences - specifically with the HTC Vive, Maya and Unity. However, any and all head-mounted displays (Oculus, HoloLens... Virtual Boy, etc...) and gaming engines are up for discussion for sharing tips, tricks and workflows. I envision a future where this meetup could all learn together, form an awesome Bellingham indy game studio, and unite our skills to build a wildly successful game or VR experience in our free time. Because hey, couldn't that be exponentially more awesome than your day job?
Join us next Sunday the 31st at 1:30pm as we welcome Scott Simmons, a local VR/AR enthusiast, who recently dove head first into VR with a passion for sharing and creating content to bring that passion to others.
Scott will be demoing a mixed reality video shoot, where users are captured while in the VR headset and transposed into a video that merges the user with the game they are playing. Come on down to share in this experience. Volunteers are encouraged. You can be the star of your very own VR video!
We’ll be at the Bellingham Makerspace at 1000 F St, Bellingham, WA 98225
