The Immersed Augmented Reality Panel is UP!

This augmented reality (AR) panel was a big hit at Immersed, and featured Ray Sharma (XMG Studio), Srinivas Krishna (AWE Company), and Neil Trevett (The Khronos Group, Nvidia).  Jason Jerald from Nextgen Interactions was moderating - good job, Jason!

The audio should be cleaner with this video.  We discovered an editing feature to cut out a lot of the noise.  Tough gig!  If you think it's enough of an improvement, we'll re-encode the earlier videos.

Play Piano With Your Eyes!

FOVE Makes Playing Piano Without Hands Possible!Now this is both VERY cool and VERY useful!  Gizmodo Japan was able to partake in a demonstration featuring the up and coming FOVE HMD that features eye tracking capabilities.  This demo gave users without the use of their hands the ability to play piano with their eyes and JUST their eyes.

Instead of seeing an 88 key keyboard, the user is faced with a visual map that they can point at with their eyes, and quickly tap or select by rapidly blinking.  While this is a practical application that isn't exactly VR buts uses a VR device, it definitely speaks to the realization of just how important eye tracking will be in future virtual reality applications and interfaces.  Good stuff!

Immersed Futurists Panel is UP!

This was one of several big-attraction panels at Immersed.  This featured John Gaeta (Lucasfilm), David Traub (Epiphany Film Fund), Neil Trevett (President Khronos Group), and Professor Michael Page (OCADU). People like to say that The Matrix and The Lawnmower Man got them excited about VR. Well, here are some of the top minds behind those movies among other thought provokers.  They sit, they talk, they debate and discuss where things are headed at Immersed!

Topics covered include the ethics of VR, the industry's future, privacy issues, and so much more.  Lots of fun!

For those that missed Immersed 2014, worry not!  Immersed 2015 is going to be happening October 4-6, 2015.  This, and we still have a lot (A LOT) of content left from the inaugural conference.
