Web Summit 2016

Web Summit 2016

So now that I have had some time to digest everything from web summit, I figured it was time to talk about it. In Early October 2016 I hopped on a plane to fly over to Lisbon Portugal. Not knowing what to expect I figured I would spend the next 6 days wandering around Lisbon and catching some talks at the event. Over all, that stuff did happen but the event ended up having a lot more in store for me than I initially expected.

Virtual Reality Tracking

Virtual Reality Tracking

Now that the big 3 VR HMDs are out it is time to talk about tracking. Some things work and some don’t. When you watch videos of any of the helmets it is easy to think they all work flawlessly, which obviously isn’t true.

My Ramblings on Virtual Reality Input Devices

My Ramblings on Virtual Reality Input Devices

I have been working with VR for a long time. I can turn around in my lab and see HMDs ranging from the HTC vive all the way back to the Oculus DK1. In that time there have been a lot of different attempts at input devices that have either become standard or kinda become forgotten about.

Construction Safety Simulator is GREENLIT

Construction Safety Simulator is GREENLIT

So what does this mean? Well this is exciting news for Bit Space Development because over the last year or so we have been working with many different organizations to build interactive training solutions to help organizations accomplish things like hazard identification without putting their employees in danger while they learn. Being greenlit is awesome because this was an opportunity to take what we knew and build something fresh.. in virtual reality. We were voted onto the Steam platform in less than a week, far less time than industry standard which has given us a huge amount of data about our potential customers.
