CyberTECH which is San Diego 501(c)3 non profit has recently taken over as the Organizer of the San Diego Gaming Meetup. We have renamed the Meetup CyberTECH Virtual, Augmented Reality and Video Game Developers San Diego.
Immersion into virtual reality is a perception of being physically present in a non-physical world. The perception is created by surrounding the user of the VR system in images, sound or other stimuli that provide an engrossing total environment.
The name is a metaphoric use of the experience of submersion applied to representation, fiction or simulation. Immersion can also be defined as the state of consciousness where a "visitor" (Maurice Benayoun) or "immersant" (Char Davies)'s awareness of physical self is transformed by being surrounded in an artificial environment; used for describing partial or complete suspension of disbelief, enabling action or reaction to stimulations encountered in a virtual or artistic environment. The degree to which the virtual or artistic environment faithfully reproduces reality determines the degree of suspension of disbelief. The greater the suspension of disbelief, the greater the degree of presence achieved.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or questions and we look forward to seeing you at our next Meetup.
This group is for established & aspiring game developers to network, share knowledge, and spawn innovative new games that'll revolutionize the industry!
I'd like to keep our meetings fun but focused, and I'm happy to hear your ideas for discussion topics.
