SFVR #4 was our best meetup, yet! Let's see if we can outdo ourselves :)
As always, this event is about getting to know the rapidly growing VR community in San Francisco in a casual and friendly environment. Come join us to learn about and discuss the most exciting space in computing technology.
Faceshift - Our software analyzes the face motions of an actor, and describes them as a mixture of basic expressions, plus head orientation and gaze. This description is then used to animate virtual characters for use in movie or game production.
Mozilla - Mozilla developers are working on experimental support for 3D virtual reality within the browser. The initial prototype supports the Oculus Rift Developer Kit to provide stereoscopic 3D output and lets scripts use the headset's orientation sensors for input.
WorldViz - WorldViz is the industry leader in turnkey interactive visualization and simulation solutions. We pride ourselves in providing you with world leading Virtual Reality expertise, and unparalleled immersive visualization experiences.
Unbound - A volumetric platform for virtual nature on the scale of the earth, where the developer and artist create from within, guided by a philosophy of play.
Shlomo Zippel - VR is pretty immersive but wouldn't it be more immersive if you could get your body into the virtual world? I'll be combining the VR headset with a 3d sensor to get an avatar into the virtual world and create immersive full body experiences.
KOR-FX Haptic Vest - Get environmental feedback from your game! KOR-FX uses cutting-edge tech that lets you feel every movement, bullet, and explosion.
Temple of Merk - Temple of Merk is an Oculus Rift experience that combines dungeon crawler and arcade elements. Wield two weapons at a time and combat a plethora of fiends using the Razer Hydra. The game features full body awareness and a unique combat system that favors accurate strikes over wild swinging.
Doors at 7:00, talks start at 7:30, then we'll open the room up to demos. Pizza and water will be provided. Beers will be sold for $3 (cash only). A $10 donation is requested.
