Reggie Watts is Live in VR with AltspaceVR and Perception Neuron
Reggie Watts—comic, genius and epic improvisationalist will be performing live-in-VR this Thursday May 26 at 8 pm Pacific Time. This is going to be the first event of its kind featuring live stand-up comedy in a completely virtual environment. What makes it even more exciting for us is that Reggie will be wearing Perception Neuron to track his movements inside AltspaceVR's virtual venue. If you have ever watched a performance by Reggie (and you can here), then you know anything can happen when he's on stage. From various worldly accents to breaking into a soulful, impromptu song, his performances are known for their spontaneity. Now, thanks to AltspaceVR and with the help of a little VR magic, anyone, anywhere can tune in to catch this live performance. The show is completely free and all you need to do is sign-up to AltspaceVR, wait for Thursday 8 pm Pacific Time, put on your VR gear and tune in. Get more info and register for the show here. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!
Noitom’s Project Alice Took Everyone ‘Down the Rabbit Hole' at This Year’s SVVR
We just LOVE SVVR. By far, this is the best event anywhere in the world for virtual reality technology and we are so honored and grateful to have been a part of it (thanks Nana and Karl!). It is both refreshing and exciting to meet with people from all over the world who share a common interest in VR and all that it can do not just for gaming but for all kinds of industries. This is where Project Alice comes. Project Alice is Noitom’s new B2B VR solution and it was the “easily the coolest technology demonstrated at SVVR” at least according to the Silicon Valley Business Journal and the many SVVR attendees who had the chance to visit our booth. Giving businesses the platform with which to create custom vR experiences for their audiences, Project Alice offers multi-user interaction, low-latency hybrid tracking of HMD and physical objects, large tracking dimension and body and hand tracking in VR. And though it is not a consumer product, many of our booth visitors just had fun blowing up balloons, shooting lasers and throwing objects at each other. We are all very happy for the turnout we had and had a blast the whole week. Thanks to all of you who came by to come with us “down the rabbit hole” with Project Alice and for sure, we will see you next year!
