At our next meetup, Adam Byram will bring an Oculus Rift dev kit:
The Oculus Rift is an upcoming virtual reality headset designed to deliver immersive 3D gaming experiences to the mass market. The best way to get a feel for what this means to the future of gaming is to experience it first hand. At this month’s meeting, we’ll have an Oculus Rift Dev Kit loaded up with some of the popular tech demos and games for attendees to try. We’ll also take a brief look at the Oculus SDK, in particular, the drop in components for Unity 4 Pro integration.
If you want to bring your own project made with the Rift’s SDK to try out you can download the SDK from developer.oculusvr.com. Adam has passed on that the SDK requires a Unity Pro 4.2+ license due to the use of external DLLs.
The meetup will be held at the Technology Cooperative located in the Knoxville Old City at 130 W. Jackson Ave. As always we will start at 2PM and open with a Show ‘n Tell where everyone can show a bit of their in progress game, favorite tool, mechanic they love in another game, or anything they find helpful and want to share with the group.
