The Quest For The (Free) VR PC

This is a project that I have been working on for nearly a year. For a long time I have been building computers, since before it was cool to own your own gaming rig. The first PC that I owned that I could call my own I had to put together myself, before that I had to time share with my family.. which for young Dan was not always the easiest task. While I was in highschool I took system building to an obsessive level and at one point had 30 computers in my basement, which  I later donated to local schools.

This past weekend was Skills Canada, a large competition and trade show where tradespeople compete in their trade. Not only is this competition an impressive collection of trades, but it is also a gathering place for innovation in the fields as well as people who make decisions at their organizations.

Skills Canada was a particularly good convention for Bit Space because not only did we have a client in the main trade show floor where we were demonstrating our technology, we had 2 additional booths showing our tech. We were very proud to have so much of our work on display for thousands of kids, competitors, and tradespeople.

Over the past several months we have been working at Bit Space Development with our friends at ZenFri on an application for the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre. This is one of the more creative projects we have produced at Bit Space including custom art and an original idea. The application uses AR (augmented reality) to engage kids while they learn about ancient aquatic reptiles.
