So we’re heading to a huge bowling event called Bowl Expo. We’re super excited about it for a few reasons:
We believe bowling alleys are the perfect nationwide (worldwide really) infrastructure to be able to efficiently bring Virtual Reality Arcades to the masses. Think about how many towns/cities have bowling.
It’s always a good time to work with “purveyors of fun”.
We will have the coolest shirts and posters in the joint!
We asked our buddy Dave Cavnar to put together a cool bowling scene for us and that he did.
Wanna see something even cooler? Check out the video of this art. You can really see just how detailed and how totally immersive it is.
The only way to see it clearer is to be looking at it in TiltBrush where it was created. And if you’re at the Bowl Expo with us, you certainly can. Here’s your invite to come check us out at booth 916.
It drives me nuts that what someone experiences while wearing a Google Cardboard or a Samsung GearVR is called the same thing as if they were wearing an HTC Vive.
Newsflash people, they’re not even in the same league.
To point out the differences I employ a pair of “boats”, a Saturn Vue and a Maserati. You might be able to see where this is going already. In any respect give the video a quick look:
Once you’ve tried the HTC Vive (and it’s likely true for the Oculus Rift, I haven’t experienced it yet) it’s hard to go back to phone driven VR. In fact, can’t we all agree that we have to stop calling bone phone driven and computer driven VR? So not the same thing.
This is when a blog post turns into a mild rant.
Tucks soapbox neatly under the desk and returns you to your previous activities.
