There is a bit of a story here. At GDC 2015, MTBS very much wanted to try out the HTC Vive, but it was an impossibility given the limited number of appointments, timing, etc. I'm on the East Coast, so access is further limited.
The thing is I live and breath this stuff...and believe it or not...Vive even appeared in my dreams. The dream went like this: I was at yet another conference with a crowd of people. Valve was getting set to once again show the HTC Vive and I was being waived in for my demo. The Vive was ready, I was ready, and I said "just give me a moment while I get my camera out". As I was crouching down to get my trusty 3D camcorder, the Valve representative immediately yells "NO!" and takes the Vive away.
I immediately woke up and came to the sad realization that even in my dreams, I'm not allowed to try out the HTC Vive.
As promised, SVVR was a great conference and we managed to get a few interviews before the show was done. Today we got to catch up with Cubicle Ninjas' Josh Farkas who talked about their relaxation virtual reality software and their agency's innovative work.
Just getting back into the swing of things after SVVR! It was a tremendous show; just about all the industry thought leaders had some kind of presence, and SVVR's teamwork paid off in a big way. Everyone was glad they went. Congratulations again to the whole SVVR team for a great two days!
It makes no sense that with all the rich discussions, innovations, and general futurist thinking that was showcased at this memorable conference, that the biggest story circulating the web was in answer to a question. That Oculus was open to porn, and how this somehow demonstrates they have an open platform.
