Level Up Happens This Friday!

It's that time again!  Each year, nearly all the universities in Ontario which have a game development program get together under one roof to showcase their students' latest work.  It's a great opportunity for young minds to meet with future industry employers and, more importantly, to have a blast!

Some of the big name sponsors this year include Ubisoft. Autodesk, Microsoft, Razer, AMD, Unity, and countless more.  Speaking of big name sponsors, AMD is contributing twelve video game prize packs; so that alone is going to make this event lots of fun!

Learn more at the Level Up! Gaming Showcase website.  While The University of Ontario Institute of Technology will definitely be there wth some immersive technology to show, other schools featured include Sheridan, OCAD University, University of Toronto, and more.

Tobii Technology Only Has Eyes For You at GDC!

If you don't have a 3D display, choose "no glasses" and "left image only" in the YouTube 3D viewing options.

The above is just a demo of Tobii Technology.  We also have a full interview with Carl Korobkin, their VP of Business Development.  For those unfamiliar, Tobii Technology makes eye tracking peripherals which are starting to make waves in the video game space.  Lots of fun!

VRELIA and White Lotus on MTBS

Don't judge the VRELIA team by the bland exhibition surroundings in this video! They literally flew in from Spain with just days of notice, and had to throw something together very quickly in a city (no, country!) they've never been to.

Their HMD prototypes are obviously a work in progress, but they've got a good thing going with this. We especially liked the way you can customize the focus for each eye for ultra sharpness. More details are found in their MTBS-TV interview!

Also, we'd like to send a shout out to Janel Torkington who submitted a fantastic guest piece interview with White Lotus and their new game "XING: The Land Beyond".
