If you’ve seen any of my tweets over the past few days, you probably already know what I’m up to this week. I’ll give you a hint: I’m in LA, I’m surrounded by hundreds of virtual reality fans, and I have a demo slot to meet Henry in one hour. Yeah, as I gave away in […]
Hey everyone! In my last post, I mentioned that I was headed to Germany to teach virtual reality development and I’m back in the States with 10 fewer Cardboards and lessons learned on virtual reality development.

When you’re feeling down about the bug you can’t fix, a major studio announces a title that is too similar to yours for comfort, or the doubters and naysayers are being just a bit too persuasive for comfort – go show a group of kids virtual reality for the first time, and be ready for […]

Robot Invader co-founder Chris Pruett discussed Dead Secret, an upcoming Gear VR murder mystery title, and the process for making the game VR-ready. Pruett, who also works for Oculus’s Developer […]
Last night, SFVR was featured at the REAL 2015 Conference with some great speakers and awesome exhibitions set up! Here’s my quick recap of what went down.
Yesterday was the Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Holiday Party and it was freaking awesome! Hosted at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, the SVVR meetup party was host to a wide assortment of companies and application demos, but the Oculus Crescent Bay headset stole the show with a line that took over 2 hours […]
Yesterday, I had the privilege to participate in a hack/code-a-thon at a local middle school as part of the Hour of Code initiative and thought that I’d share my love for Virtual Reality by bringing my Oculus Rift with me and doing demos during lunchtime. Although I suspected that a number of the kids would find […]
