Mobile VR Jam Contest

At first it looks like just another 3D-projection. But the magic unfolds once you start moving your head. The headset creates a whole virtual space: Look up and you’ll actually see a lamp on the ceiling. Look left and a whole room appears. It even lets you stand on a rooftop with a 360-degree view of a city, including a jaw-dropping view to the streets below.


Samsung says the new headset is 15 percent smaller than the original

The final upgrade is the introduction of a USB port, which lets you charge your S6 while it’s inside the headset.

S6 has no removable battery and no MicroSD card slot.

Come April, Oculus will hold a Mobile VR Jam with prizes totaling $1 million. The company is incentivizing the creation of virtual reality games and experiences for the Samsung Gear VR headset, which Samsung built in collaboration with Oculus.

Dates: April 13, 2015 to May 11, 2015. Winners announced on or around June 4, 2015.

I like the concept of boundary sensory cues.

I like the concept of rotating the ship by the direction you look at.

Oculus VR opted to build an IR-LED array into the DK2. The array is tracked by an included CMOS camera which captures frames 60 times per second.

I like the astral body view
