ITRL? Racecars and B*@t Plugs

It is an incredibly exciting time for VR. It seems that every week there is a new innovation or advancement and best of all, apps are turning up left and right. Luckily for us we have the 6dof to spot them.  

This week on ITRL we look at some of the latest apps that are toping the VR charts and discuss the dreaded delay in GFX card technology.

It was about 6 weeks ago when Nic had endured the loss of his beloved DK2 after just 5 days of use. This loss lead to a deprivation of VRs sweet taste. But alas did the replacement not only arrive for Nic, Brandon too has finally just recieved his DK2. 

Today on the show the gents discuss what few games and demos they have had the chance to get into. Along with another shallow look at Magic Leap.

Is This Real Life? The VR Naysayers

Virtual Reality was a medium that was first promised over 20 years ago. It came and went, crashing in a fiery mess. Now that we stand on the cusp of the second arrival of virtual reality it is no surprise that naysayers will be there to tell us that history will repeat itself.


Today on the show Edmund Ward of Virtual Reality Reviewer joins us to talk about a particularly hot article and a few other news pieces.

The DK2 was long awaited! A huge upgrade from the original Oculus Rift Development Kit. As if it wasn't bad enough that you may still be waiting for your DK2. There is now an Oculus Rift prototype that blows the DK2 out of the water.

 

At Oculus Connect this past weekend they showed off their latest prototype, Crescent Bay.  Toting a new display, speculated to be 1440p or higher, running at 90hz, full 360 positional tracking and integrated headphones.

 

Today on the show Abe Hunter of Rifty Business joins us to discuss the latest in VR news.

Imagine a world where you are being watched, every hour, and every second. A world where the sun forever hides behind the cover of clouds and the streets are paved with the dew of the night. Technolust is set in a dystopian cyberpunk world where you must fight for your freedom from the oppressive corporations and hack your way to the truth.

 

Today on the show Blair Renaud from IRIS VR joins us to discuss Technolust and the development processes required to implement the DK2.
