The new Second life viewer shows much promise so now we size everything for the Oculus. I think this is the future of virtual reality.

Tried out the new viewer today.  I did spend some time building and exploring Second life and I did not even get close to motion sickness. And I got a full interface if I wanted to. Great but of course writing on the keyboard did not work so good. Thought I would write this in world but, no that do not work.

But I was impressed with the new viewer. Visited some gallery´s and enjoyed the art in a totally different way. The painting behind me on the picture is huge in SL and when it comes to art size matters. It is another way to say something with a work of art. Small thing should be small and large, well large.

Building will take some time to learn but it is great to get the right size and be able to see what the final result will look like. I visited some of my old builds and some things just look silly and oversized. And then I have always tried to build for the avatars size. Guess I needed the Oculus to get it right.

Firing up my dev grid now to see what more things I have to change. Have not been there yet and I just have to wait to go to Lendonia. Probably a lot of work.

The new project viewer for DK2 is a great step forward for real virtual reality.

Standing in the spooky house next door to my gallery and looking at my home in Second life. As you can see it is really not that exciting but with the Oculus rift it is sooo cool.

I have tried out many games and today I made a go at World of warcraft. Nice place good frame rate but it made me sick as so many other games.

The Oculus is not good for games. I thought that driving games would be the best, but not so. It is a question of how much that move. It is like ordinary sea sickness. If to many things move. Goodbye.

[frame1] the car is moving. + [frame2] your head is moving = motion sickness.

But for virtual reality the Oculus is the best! I do not want to go in world without it anymore. The feeling of being there is just unbelievable. I explore new places everyday and the only drawback is that I cant chat. Have to use voice but I have made a SL Oculus rift now to tell folk that they have to use voice if they want something. Sorry to say not many do.

Still have not been to a adult club but I just have to do it. SL avatars are smashing.

So I have learned. Keep you head still.

Painted simulator platform

The new simulator platform got its first paint job and some other stuff and is soon ready for connecting to the development system again. Now interfacing with the Arduino and button, knobs and LEDs.

And it is going to be lots of fun trying it out.

Started the work to build pedals and yoke but still some things to iron out. Its on the drawing board.
