This past weekend, OrangeCountyVR hosted our very first hack-a-thon/game-jam dedicated to bringing together local developers and artist to share ideas, collaborate, and learn from each other. We had a blast and everyone got involved in the process. Our goal was simple, to create virtual reality experiences for education.
About 30 VR Troopers all-told, we shared ideas in an open-forum, bounced them around a bit, and finally landed on 5 solid concepts as follows.
Team Leader: Aaron Gutierrez
Team Leader: Andy Johnson
VR Typing Trainer
Team Leader: Jeff Macalino
Team Leader: Alex Moro
Our guest judges were Andres Hernandez from Oculus VR (@cybereality) and Morris May from Specular Theory (@MorrisMayVFX). After some super-serious judging and deliberating (i.e. playing video games in VR), they awarded the first place prize to the team from “VR Typing Trainer”.
