Throwing a party in virtual reality (DJ/VJ perspective)

In TheWaveVR last Saturday, DJ Pearl Grey had just left the decks and we were starting to feel dance withdrawals so I decided to keep the party going by throwing a public home cave party.

Here is part 2 of the highlights if you enjoyed the first one:

In these highlights I wanted to try and capture the DJ’s point of view and show how the audio and visuals can be dynamically changed on the fly. 

The visual art was mostly crowd-sourced, but I did some of it myself in Tiltbrush and some is built into TheWaveVR.

TheWaveVR just went global, so now anyone can throw and attend ‘waves’!

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!

What’s especially interesting about the system is its modularity which allows it to scale according to the needs of the venue. The typical square pod is made up of a 6 × 6 grid of haptic floor tiles surrounding by a matching frame. Like Legos, the tiles and walls can connect together in any configuration. For instance, you could opt for a larger square layout, a rectangle, and asymmetrical shape, or even two square areas connected by a thin hallway.

utopiaville:

Thanks to a VR headset like the HTC Vive and accompanying motion controllers, you can show a robot named Brett how to tackle simple tasks without ever having to write any additional code. 

After a while the robot learns and starts to match how you as the human operator would have done to task. Eventually Brett can take over the task without any assistance.

Toyota’s latest humanoid robot can mimic your movements

The operator can control the robot’s entire body using what’s called the Master Maneuvering System. The user wears data gloves and an HTC Vive VR headset that’s linked to cameras to show the robot’s perspective.

The operator can move the robot forwards or laterally by making walking movements while remaining in place. The robot also has balance control, so if it collides with an object, it can keep its balance.
