Oculus Mobile VR Jam 2015

April 17, 2015 devblog, IgnisVR no comments

We are participating in the Oculus Mobile VR Jam 2015.

It is a global contest where developers (individually, team-based or as a company) build Vr games, apps or experiences for the Samsung Gear VR.

We are competing in the ‘games’ track and are building a cooperative multiplayer game with the name ‘Land Fall’.

In addition to participating as an development entrant, we are also official appointed by Oculus as one of the Local Hardware Hubs for this contest in the Netherlands. If you have to test your own build and you do not have the hardware, please contact us so you can test your build at our location in Den bosch.

For our networking layer we use Photon Networking and they have granted us a free 500 CCU license for 3 months. Thanks Exit Games!

Workshop Arachnophobia bij Rino Zuid

March 4, 2015 IgnisVR no comments

Op 4 maart 2015 hebben we een workshop Virtual Reality gegeven tijdens het congres ‘IT’s all in the Game’ bij RINO-Zuid.

In deze workshop stond Virtual Reality centraal en met name onze psychologie gerelateerde VR ervaring: ‘Arachnophobia Virtual Reality Exposure therapie met de Oculus Rift’.

De workshop bestond uit een informatief gedeelte en een praktisch gedeelte, waar de deelnemers zelf aan de slag gingen met het bedenken van Virtual Reality ervaringen, die mogelijk binnen het eigen werkveld van meerwaarde konden zijn. Hieronder de resultaten. Men kreeg gedurende de workshop ook de mogelijkheid om VR zelf te ervaren.

This will be the first in a series of blog posts about connecting electronics to interact with the real world from within Virtual Reality.

Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR and Virtual Reality in 2015

January 4, 2015 devblog, IgnisVR, News no comments

What expectations do you have for 2015 about the Oculus Rift ?

Oculus VR has always communicated clearly that they do not want to call any release date too soon, because they want to deliver a good product. They know well that they only have one chance to put VR in its new form on the map. Oculus has stated that they would be very disappointed when they couldn’t deliver the first consumer version of the Oculus Rift in 2015.

Case upgrade for Oculus Rift Development Kit 2

August 17, 2014 devblog, Hardware, IgnisVR, News no comments

Being Oculus Rift evangelists like us, our gear is really being put to the test when it comes down to packing, traveling and unpacking. With more versions of the development kit released and with no ability to upgrade limbs on our human bodies. We had to find a solution to keep us mobile while traveling with as much as there is needed, to show off everything that’s going on in virtual reality.
