Doing Virtual Reality Standing Up


Believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve ever tried doing virtual reality standing up.

Home Sweet Home


The two buttons on my controller that change the direction of view have stopped working for some unknown reason, so I’m rearranging things so I can turn all the way around in my chair or when standing. Also, since I’m capturing 100 degree hFOV VR, I’m experimenting with compositing it that way in my 360 3D VR scene.

The Clock On The Wall


Look at the clock on the wall. That’s the actual time here in Los Angeles County! How ’bout that!
After I recorded the TD30’s video, I decided to switch places, since it might look odd to be facing away from the SteamVR video.

A Better View


I found a better way to look at stereoscopic photos with my OSVR HMD, and I’m showing you the stereoscopic view on my monitor as I’m looking at it.
I’m also experimenting with a way to get rid of the lens fogging problem.

Final Adjustments


I made some final adjustments to the new bike.
I recorded this video at 720 60p with another old 3D camcorder that I haven’t used in years, a Toshiba Camileo Z100. Although I shot the video down near the lake in the Santa Fe Dam Recreational Area, the background photos were shot with my cell phone up on the bike trail over the dam.
