What we’re about
We're here to talk about, program, share, and demonstrate software, hardware, and ideas for the upcoming new wave of virtual reality. Whether you're an avatar who spends more time in virtual worlds than the real one or someone who's never even worn a head mounted display, you'll find a great group of people who love VR. Each month we bring in presenters from companies who are pioneering VR technology and also feature an array of demonstrations created by our local VR developers. They can help you embark comfortably on your first VR experience or dive deep into VR design and discuss the latest news from the fast changing world of VR. We are a government certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which means that all ticket fees and donations are dedicated to putting on more VR events in Boston and that all donations are tax deductible.

Description: This event is run though the Boston Virtual Reality Meetup Group. This month John Gagan will teach UV unwrapping in Blender, an essential modeling skill. We will first unwrap a 3D model in Blender and then apply a 2D texture to it. Then we will all work on Blender 3D projects together. John Gagan is a six year veteran in 3D modeling, 4 of which he spent as the head of the Boston Blender Group.
