This picture has taken the internet by storm. Here’s a summary from Mashable. This visual though scary in some ways, is oddly liberating, in that Mark seems to be happy about the future (why wouldn’t he be, after all he owns Oculus).

In the fall of 2015, I taught a class in idea development with the final project being a VR exercise for various groups to undertake. Using narrative techniques to make asynchronous projections using Holobuilder. Its actually an interesting application that allows connected 360 images to be created and then projected into VR headsets.

Here are some of the student projects:

This was my first attempt at getting interactive projects commissioned using narrative structure but projecting in an asynchronous fashion. All in all very satisfying, however the VR world does scare me a bit….
