First, congrats to Samsung / Oculus VR for selling out on their first day. According to Business Korea, the available stock for Gear VR cleared shop in less than 24 hours, though their supplies have been quickly replenished and users can again make purchases for this Innovator Edition of the Gear VR product. We have no idea how big the first lot of Gear VRs were, but hey - good for them. Be forewarned that in addition to only being available in the USA, the Samsung Note 4 also has to be branded for the USA on an American carrier, or you won't be able to use the product at all.
What a night! Our webhosting service provider was struck by a major denial of serivce attack last night. First our email went, then the websites, and finally the universe closed in on itself. Madness, I tell you!
First, everything is working again! Woohoo! Sorry for the inconvenience.
Next, we have been encoding all the content from Immersed. WHAT A SHOW! We'll get more up tomorrow along with a cool press release. Good stuff cooking!
BONUS: We also fixed a bug withGameGrade3D. For those using stereoscopic 3D drivers with 3D monitors, this is a great tool to help determine game compatibility with different software options.
Now this is cool! The Immersive Technology Alliance and Meant to be Seen are proud to be media sponsors for the upcoming B.I.G. Summit taking place on January 20, 2015 in Miami Beach, Florida. This one day event is designed to be an industry-building conference, and features a keynote by...you guessed it...Randi Zuckerberg, one of the pioneering entrepreneurs behind Facebook.
This year, a strong focus is being placed on virtual and augmented reality, and some of the leading names attached include EON Reality, Next Galaxy Corp., Vuzix Corporation, and more. Even Wired Magazine's Peter Rubin will be speaking and sharing, so this is definitely a must-attend event; especially if you're in the MIami Beach area and are seriously interested in this space.
In addition to a strong agenda, meals are included making this an excellent value to interested entrepreneurs and businesses.
IMPORTANT: Wear jeans! That's part of the dress code! ;-)
