We are in the second wave of virtual reality and many believe that it is here to stay. But then again they thought it was here to stay back in the nineties when VR had its first apperance before the world. 

 

Today on the show Bernie Roehl joins us to talk about his experiences in the world of virtual reality. Bernie has been a n enthusiast for over 20 years and has a bag full of knowledge to proove it.

Is This Real Life? - The Blair Renaud Project, Technolust

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.
