We've been making gradual improvements to the website recently. This is what we've done with the downloads section:
It's now possible to download files without being a registered member of MTBS.
The latest file uploads are listed on the front page of mtbs3D.com.
We added a comments engine so users can share remarks on individual files shared.
"Our technology is changing the way consumers experience their favorite music, sporting events, travel destinations and more. The size, scale and high-end quality of our technology captures a precise 360-degree environment that enables an unparalleled virtual reality experience putting consumers right in the action, whether that's experiencing the crashing surf on the beach in Bali or sitting front row at the hottest concert in town. When you put on a headset for the first time, you instantly understand the meaning of 'seeing is believing." - David Cole, Co-founder of NextVR.
On the heels of Samsung and Oculus VR announcing Gear VR Innovator Edition, NextVR (formerly known as Next3D) have announced that they have an arrangement with Samsung and Oculus VR to supply VR movie content and streaming ability.
What's even more encouraging to see is that NextVR has raised five million dollars in investment capital to further their business and technology growth. Great work, guys!
Over the past few months, there has been some excitement and hype about Gear VR, an add-on HMD plate for Samsung's Note 4 smartphone. Developed in conjunction with Oculus VR, Gear VR Innovator Edition provides mobile virtual reality based on 3 DOF headtracking. Similar to the way the Oculus Rift developer kits run on mobile screens, this is a similar idea that keeps the phone intact.
Like the DK series of Rifts, this is targeted to early developers and enthusiasts while the consumer version undergoes continued development.
