MTBS Tries Vanguard V at SIGGRAPH!


Check out the above video put together by Carl White at the SIGGRAPH Global VR Meetup.  Nicely done!

MTBS is also pleased to share our interview with Justin Moravetz, Founder of ZeroTransform.  He is putting together a unique VR game called Vanguard V, and we liked what we saw.  In fact, lots of people were smiling and sharing positive feedback when their tour of duty was done.  Keep up the good work, Justin!

His Kickstarter is almost out of time, so pass or no pass, we really hope this effort continues.

New ITA Additions, Dreamworks and JPR Interviewed About VR!


Very exciting news on two fronts.  First, if you are fans of The Matrix Trilogy, Star Trek, or Star Wars, you need to visit the ITA website to see who the latest additions are to their advisory board.  Much of the excitement around modern AR and VR can be credited to the visions these gentlemen helped create.  It's a big honor!

Next, MTBS really lucked out by scoring an interview with Dr. Lincoln Wallen, CTO of Dreamworks Animation and Dr. Jon Peddie, CEO of Jon Peddie Research.  In addition to talking about virtualization in Cloud Computing, a fair bit of time was spent talking about virtual and augmented reality.  This is obviously something that has crossed their desk - very interesting!

The SIGGRAPH Global VR Meetup!


The SIGGRAPH Global VR Meetup was a HUGE success!  In addition to having a series of special demos for  a packed room, there were presentations made by NextGen Interactions, Sixense Entertainment, SVVR and The Immersive Technology Alliance.  This was followed up by an impromptu panel discussion which sparked some great conversation.  Each section is custom linked below:

Jason Jerald, NextGen Interactions
Amir Rubin, Sixense Entertainment
Karl Krantz, SVVR
Neil Schneider, Immersive Technology Alliance
Panel Discussion

Really cool to see some of the industry's greats investing their personal time to push immersive tech in their own way (as discussed in the presentations!).  Definitely a positive energy in the room (that was sold out!)!
