A few weeks ago, MTBS got a chance to take a trip to Spain and enjoy the sites. More importantly, Spain is a developing hub in the world of immersive technology, and while we couldn't do a lot of interviews, we nailed this one!
Atlantis Virtual Reality specializes in exhibition virtual and augmented reality, and they had a lot of cool stuff to show! ImmersiON-VRelia was onhand to do the Spanish to English translation for us. Enjoy the interview!
"We're excited about joining the ITA and working with the other members to push VR and 3D stereoscopic development forward. With the excitement around VR and the challenges developers face creating great VR and 3D experiences, it's great to be able to discuss ideas and solutions with other people down in the trenches and push the medium forward." – Jason Spangler, CTO and Co-Founder of Descendent Studios
It doesn't get much cooler than that! Very proud to have this fine addition to the ITA to help push the industry forward. Non-profit and non-proprietary, the Immersive Technology Alliance is the voice and standards body for immersive technologies like virtual reality, augmented reality, stereoscopic 3D, and more.
Alongside Doom and Quake, games like Wing Commander and Descent were the staples that cemented the future of the mind blowing video games we take for granted today.
Descent is back! Pilot your ship and battle foes through twisting, turning tunnels with unrestricted 3D movement & FPS action in Zero-G! Descent: Underground is a completely re-imagined version of the original featuring new environments, breathtaking graphics, and...virtual reality. Similar to the way Descent was required gaming in the 90's, Descent: Underground could very well be the stuff of legend.
There is just over a day left before their Kickstarter campaign finishes, and they've raised over $450,000 of their $600,000 goal. We'd really like to see this vision become a reality!
