Virtual Reality

What does Alan use?
In 2013, the wired Oculus Rift developer kit was a game changer to put on and play with.

In 2015, this became even more freeing with the standalone Gear VR Powered by Oculus.

In 2020, I use a standalone Oculus Quest.

VR consulting
In 2017, the Oculus Rex team made a number of findings about creating worlds in VR.

  1. Small spaces can pack a lot of content.
  2. The magic is in the details.
  3. Acknowledge people as if they are really in the world you created.
  4. Adding complexity is more than likely not the right decision in VR.

Or, in other words:

  1. People love boundaries for security and comfort.
  2. People love discovering new things.
  3. People love being recognised and respected.
  4. People love things to be as simple as possible (but no simpler).
