As part of the International Festival for Business last week I helped out at Realspace’s VR hub in the Liverpool Science Centre. Realspace have recently set up, amongst other things providing a space for local businesses to experiment with VR. They knew I was working on a VR game and asked if I could demo it at the event – but the game is such an early prototype it’s still full of coder art, which I’m not keen to show to people!¬†Instead I showed the very first thing I made after getting my DK2: I took Epic’s ‘Realistic Rendering’ environment and added some physics-based gaze mechanics. So you could walk around Epic’s¬†beautiful apartment lounge, and turn the lamps on and off and pick up and smash objects ‘with your mind’. Ludicrous but oddly compelling – it was fun to see Serious Business People light up with joy when they realised they could smash the place up.
