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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More

I had the opportunity to speak at Prairie Dev Con on the topic of Laravel. Despite my nervousness I was happy to see lots of my friends in attendance at the conference. I have embedded my slide deck here. The talk is intended as an introduction to frameworks and Laravel in general.
Overview In this session we will explore the benefits of the Laravel framework, how to get started, and how to build an efficient platform using this powerful PHP framework. We will look at the code behind a simple application written in Laravel and dissect some of the interesting components. By the end of this talk you will be ready to start exploring PHP and Laravel for yourself.
This is a pretty basic introduction to Laravel, if you have experience in the subject you may find it more beneficial to just jump in and start playing. Check out our Docker integration: https://github.com/atrauzzi/laravel- drydock
Virtual Reality (VR) is a new medium. A lot of people think of Virtual Reality as the next big technology which is likely true, it is pretty mind blowing when you are standing on the surface of mars or you are floating through a vein into the heart.
