In Praxis… Oculus Rift

We have an exciting announcement to make! A development kit for the Oculus Rift virtual reality system should be on its way to us some time in December and we’ve already started prototyping support for it in Reset. We’ll let you know of any further developments!

Screenshot from a prototype with preliminary support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality system. Note that the warping of the image probably does not match the one expected by the Rift. The parameters for proper warping can only be obtained from the Rift SDK with the actual device attached.

Important Notice Concerning Our Indiegogo Campaign!

Finnish law does not allow companies to accept donations without compensation. Therefore we cannot accept contributions without perks. If you want to contribute, please select a perk. Thank you!

In Theory… Crowdfunding starts NOW!

After a two-week rain check we are finally ready to accept your money! We know it has been painfully burning in your socks and wallets and bank accounts but now you can feel the oh so sweet relief of parting with it! And for a good cause, no less!

Note: our campaign type is Fixed Funding, which means the goal must be passed or everyone will be refunded and we won’t get anything.

In Theory… We like bureaucrazy

Ok, so where are we? A quick Sunday update on what’s happening.

First off, thanks all for the enormously great feedback! Yet again energy reserves boosted to continue steadily on this road. And apologies for not replying to your latest comments. I will get to them this coming week. Seems we really need to start setting up a FAQ section or a forum. :D

But yeah, so what is the campaign holdup? Shortly, bureaucracy. We’ve been set up for a week now, but we’re still waiting for the red tape to clear. We made the noob mistake of thinking that the cogs of yesterday’s world would turn at a swifter pace. Doing something for the first time has its ups and downs. No matter, this is luckily just a minor delay, and there is a saying I like to use sometimes especially when someone is nervous about some trivial time related issue. So I’ll say it to myself: “What’s the rush in a ready world?” Huh, thanks man! Relaxing now. :)

Anyhoo our spirits are high as ever! Work continues normally and hopefully we get to launch the campaign next week.

Keep it tight people,

Alpo
