26 Mar 2017 MIamiVR Meetup at FIU South Campus [61852]
Saturday, April 1st, 2017: 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM

FIU South Campus

Welcome back VR Pioneers,

We're working on an exciting agenda and will let you know further details as they are finalized. Thank you to those that have shared their VR/AR gear with us in previous meetups! Much appreciated. Please let us know in advance if you will be bringing gear or a demo so we can gladly announce it at the beginning of the meeting. Ideally, we would like to have a roster of who has what gear that way if we have a demo that requires specific equipment we will be able to show it to all attendees. Contact us and we will get the list going.

Fabien Bourdon, Jackson Mades

26 Mar 2017 How VR Will Drive Storage -- Or The Reverse [61658]
ZDNet, March 17th, 2017

"While most people focus on the compute and graphics requirements for virtual reality, storage is the bigger problem going forward," warns Robin Harris in ZDNet.

"Today's storage works with 1080p (2160 combined) -- barely -- but 4k VR requires much more. Here's what you need to know...

While 4k content requires 4x the storage capacity of 2k (1080) content, it is storage bandwidth that will force costly system upgrades. Let's run the numbers..."

26 Mar 2017 Augmented And Virtual Reality To See Aggressive Growth By 2021 [61671]
ComputerWorld, March 17th, 2017

"IDC sees number of AR/VR headsets jumping dramatically as the nascent technology gains traction," reports Matt Hamblen in ComputerWorld.

"Augmented and virtual reality are catching on, even if it is still early days for both.

While some analysts at Strategy Analytics worry there aren't enough engaging 360-degree VR movies and other content on the market, IDC analysts on Thursday said there are plenty of early business-focused rollouts of AR to justify optimism..."

21 Mar 2017 VR Is Spectacular But Lonely: Here's How It Needs To Change To Succeed [61771]
ZDnet, March 21st, 2017

"Virtual reality is already impressive, but will only fulfil its real promise if it also becomes more of a shared experience...

Let's get this out of the way first. The Oculus Rift is a remarkable, intoxicating, mesmerising experience, and virtual reality, or VR, will almost certainly turn out to be one of the defining technologies of the next century -- but not quite yet.

I first tried out a VR headset perhaps a dozen years ago..."
