I threw a crazy live rave in the metaverse using TheWaveVR:

I threw an impromptu, unscheduled party and quite a few people came out! I had a blast and ended up playing for about 2 hours straight!

The set featured all songs available to spin inside TheWaveVR currently by anyone, all are featured from the ‘Funky Way’ playlist.

Special thanks to DJ EVOL♥, I stole a few of his great props!

US residents can download the beta app for free, make custom set designs and host shows!

Look, I’m A VDJ?:

In TheWaveVR you can design your own virtual dance club and use the visual effects sliders to make the effects dance to the music. (some of them do this automatically)

A lot of the art I put in my scenes comes from poly.google.com. Anything flagged as ‘remixable’ on there can be imported into these virtual club scenes.

Throw your own party like this or come join a scheduled party by checking the calendar: http://thewavevr.com/waves/

Uber Files Patent For VR Self-Driving Cars

Uber Files Patent For VR Self-Driving Cars:

The system that Uber is considering would see self-driving car’s sensor data able to generate a unique virtual environment for the rider to experience. This could for example be an action videogame that synchronizes with the motion of the car itself, creating an rail shooter title that could be enjoyed as the ride travels to their destination. 

This system could also be used to help reduce the amount of motion sickness that comes from VR when using a motion based product.

Jurassic World Alive looks like Pokémon Go but with giant dinosaurs

“Players discover dinosaurs by locating them on a map and deploying an in-game drone to collect DNA samples,” developer Ludia explains. You’ll also be able to snap a photo with your favorite dinosaurs, level up the beasts you capture, and, unlike in Pokémon Go, you’ll be able to battle them with other players. 

The game’s map screen, as shown in the debut trailer, even looks a lot like Niantic’s Pokémon AR game. Ludia previously developed a pair of park management-style Jurassic Park games for mobile.

Red Cross AR App Takes You Deep into the Life of a Child Plagued by International Warfare

It’s difficult to describe the entire experience without spoiling it. In short, the iPhone app takes you through several stages of the child’s life (as represented by the room and its items) as that child’s life is affected by local warfare. 

The entire experience is enhanced by the use of 3D audio, which increases the feeling of immersion in the child’s room.

‘Yahoo! MAP’ for iOS Now Has AR Navigation Mode in Japan

A blue path appears, giving you white arrows to indicate the direction you should travel. Footprints (and also sometimes ‘paw prints’) will follow you as you make your way to your destination. Sign posts showing distance remaining also appear periodically to show you how many meters are left in your journey.

Club Amethyst, my VR nightclub is back online and better than before!

Club Amethyst is my hand-crafted virtual night club for the metaverse!

It took a lot to get here, but the club is pretty stable now. It has been flagged public and is currently in the community spotlight on VRChat.

The club features over 2 hours of high energy dance music, spatial sound, and a large quiet area for socializing.

There is a side room with screens crediting the artists who contributed to this project including:

3D Art: EVOL

2D GIF Art: Psyklon

(4/1/18) NEW IN THIS BUILD

– Brand new wall textures

– Better lighting near the dance floor

– Re-colored a few things, colors ‘pop’ a bit more now

– Added some 3D wall art to the silent lounge.

– You can now ‘jump into’ the DeLorean.

(I’m not great with adding click-to-sit to objects, yet…)

I like the idea of featuring just one or two digital artists in my clubs so each one feels uniquely themed musically and visually, let me know what you think so far!
