The Mobile VR Jam by Oculus … I so want to accept the challenge. I decided to commit a few days ago. I bought the Gear VR even though it is hard to justify the expense. Soon I will order the Note 4.
The trick is thinking about it as an investment … fortunately men are great at that kind of self-deception :-).
The only problem: the timeframe. I can hardly see myself finishing something in the given timeframe. My spare time is severely limited and I will be just starting out with the SDK. Mentally I have already given up on actually submitting a simple and crude version of a SpriteScapes 3Ditor in the Tools and Experiences bracket:
A gamepad controlled voxel editor for the Gear VR.
Well, at least I have almost given up. If using the SDK turns out to be simpler than anything I have seen before, then I might get something worthwhile done in time.
What I am sure of is that Virtual Reality will be an interest that sticks and that I will invest time in.
Even if this challenge is not the one thing that brings me riches and glory, it is and will always be the one thing that sparked the creation of this Blog and made me second guess the thought that I do not want to join any gold rush ever.
This is going to be a cool gold rush.
