While the past year has marked a major craze for VR technologies like the Oculus Rift, the potential of augmented reality is grabbing hold of a lot of imaginations as well.
IEEE and Epson recently hosted a contest for students to come up with exciting ideas and share them online via YouTube video. $16,000 in scholarship money is up for grabs, and we look forward to seeing who the winners are.
Thanks to the tireless work of MTBS' community, we have been having regular public build releases of the Vireio Perception drivers. We're at a stage now where there are core functionality concerns that need to be rectified to take their enjoyment to the next level.
It's been a pretty good news day with word out on the street that Second Life has Oculus Rift support planned and Oculus VR just released their updated SDK. All good, right?
We thought we'd take it up a notch. We are hard at work on getting Far Cry 3 working with the Open Source Vireio Perception drivers. The updated build isn't available for download yet, and the profile is definitely a work in progress, but we are getting closer with new ideas on making the drivers better and easier to use for fellow Rifters on more games with better compatibility.
