There are a handful of must-attend conference events we participate with each year. CES, Game Developers Conference, SVVR, Immersed (of course!), and...FMX. FMX is easily the premier event for networking and learning from market leaders and pioneers working in digital media and technology. This year, The Immersive Technology Alliance has been honored to work with their content development team to help build their program pertaining to virtual reality and immersive tech, though honestly - thanks to their team's hard work, everybody already kind of knows to make their way down to FMX each year. It's just the place to be!
Hosted at MTBS since its early beginnings, word is out that Minecrift has been updated to support Oculus SDK 1.3. Minecrift is a special mod that makes it possible to play Minecraft in virtual reality form. Check out the full thread and share your results!
We have a bit of a confession to make as well. MTBS has been super quiet this week because we've been hard at work on a new website feature, and we owe it all to a really naughty SD card (Bad SD card! BAD SD CARD!). What is this feature you ask? You'll have to be patient, though we think it's going to be a lot of fun.
A big congratulations to the Realities.io team for winning the top prize at Nvidia's GTC conference.
Realities was recently launched for free on Steam, and the Realities.io team beat out the competition of over 60 virtual reality companies in the Nvidia VR showcase at GTC. MTBS' first experience with Realities.io was during Immersed Europe on the HTC Vive, and everyone who has seen their work with photogrammetry has been immensely impressed.
