Immerse yourself in a VR Game, VR Journalism and full dome experiences

Hi Copenhagen VR AR 360 Enthusiasts

Hope you had a great summer and are ready for an exciting second half of 2015. First it's expected that Samsung is going to release GearVR on full scale in cooperation with Oculus, followed by the holiday release of HTC Vive HMD and Virtuix Omni treadmills in Q4. 

At out 6 th meetup we'll immerse ourselves in a promising VR game, VR Journalism and full dome plus other immersive experiences. Program at the bottom.  

Bo Benneskov is going to give a pesentation about Bolvërk Games upcoming VR game Kittypocalypse. The youtube channel UKRifter recently gave it a very positive review (might be a spoiler if you come to the meetup) of a non-playable alpha demo. According to UKRifter it's also the only VR game in the "tower defense" game genre, which is a subgenre of real-time strategy video games. 

In May I attended the 2nd. five day Immersion Experience Symposium in Montreal. There were lots of exiting talks during the day about different immersive experiences and every night there was a full dome experience. I must say a full dome is a whole other story than a planetarium. I'll give a short presentation about full domes and other immersive experiences. 

Chris Milk, CEO VRSE is the producer of some of the most highly regarded VR experiences (app) . In March in his TED talk he presents the idea of how virtual reality could be the ultimate empathy machine. That's exactly the power of this new medium VR pioneer Nonny de la Peña it trying to use through Emblematic JournalismThey create immersive journalism pieces, which uses virtual reality to put you on scene as news and nonfiction stories unfold. 

Mikkel Nielsen has been fortunate to work with Nonny i Los Angeles as lead Unity developer on her highly recognized Project Syria (Oculus DK1), where they tried to evoke the feeling of being there - on location -  in Syria - in the warzone. Mikkel will give a presentation about immersive journalism and demo one of her newer VR experiences. 

In general, please let me know if you got any leads on interesting companies or people who could give a presentation or demo about VR, AR or 360 video. And remember we need a location for next Tuesday.  

Looking forward to see you again IRL for another enlightening Meetup. 

Best regards,

@TheisMacMadsen

    Hi guys. Thank you all for a great meetup! I was very exited to hear and see all the cool projects going on at the moment. I had to leave a bit early and did not get the time to ask much around, but:

    Do any of you have any experience in AR? I have a potential project (not running yet) where I could use a freelancer to make some AR work, or potentially just spend an hour of your time to pick your brain. Just write here, mail on jj@3dprinthuset or call me directly at[masked] if you think this could be interesting.

    All and any inputs, hints etc. are highly appreciated. Thanks!
