During the recent virtual reality hackathon at OCVR, I was able to try out a crazy contraption called Virtusphereessentially, a giant acrylic human hamster ball that lets users feel like they are walking through a virtual world. It was an intense and exciting experience that I will never forget. When it comes to virtual reality, whole idea is to initiate the feeling of presence, feeling of actually stepping deep inside virtual world. When mismatches happen between what your brain expects and what it actually feels, feeling of Presense can be break. This leaves behind a sense of disappointment along with being disassociated from the VR landscape. In order to combat the fact that your body is somewhere different than what your eyes are seeing, several companies have been working to create locomotion devices that allow freedom of movement within virtual worlds. Examples include a multi - directional treadmill known as VirtuixOmni, as well as this huge plastic ball called VirtuSphere.

It's been around for years and several online news publications like Vice, CNN, Engadget, Popular Science, and Wire have all picked it up before. However, with recent advancements of virtual reality and sudden release of Oculus Rift development kits, interest in this hamster ball - like system has fired up once again. But why does it show up in Orange County during an unassuming weekend? Why here, and why now? Answers to these questions can be understood by first looking at the growing movement of VR in Southern California. Around the same time that Facebook acquired Oculus, virtual reality meetups were starting to form in the area. At first, VRLA popped up and began aggregating consumer interest by setting up exciting events bringing in the general public and introducing them to VR for the very first time. Then, shortly after the initial VRLA meetup, second organization spring up looking to gather virtual reality developers and inspire them towards creating new ideas with virtual reality experiences as base. That developer focus meetup call themselves OCVR, which was started by a handful of guys, including Dylan Watkins, Michel Haddad, Matt Kinney, Kendrick Parks, and a few others. Interestingly enough, couple of those co - founders were running a food truck called Burger Monster at the same time and were attracting hungry developers with promises of fantastic food as well as high - tech prizes. Soon, dozens upon dozens of developers were streaming through doors looking to find like - minded individuals to team up with. When asked what OCVR is about, Dylan Watkins described it as nexus place for local developers to give them tools that they need, to give them equipment, to give them training, to give them knowledge, and allow them to have whatever experiences they want.
