They look awesome and that's a great idea! People are already plying that trade in Second Life (and I guess other games in various guises - hats/skins etc).

VR has the potential to be bigger than any of those though. Maybe.

I think VR will come and go. In the first manifestation. Not even sure if the mainstream will buy into it. There's limited use cases. I think shit like Oculus and Vive and the mobile shit is ultimately a dead end form factor. AR on the other hand, I'm pretty confident, will take the world by absolute fucking storm and VR, as an extended function of AR will finally find a place. So there's probably a gap period where VR stays niche and AR has to moore's law it's way down to something like a normal pair of sunglasses or contacts to gain widespread adoption.

In the meantime I get my Oculus Touch in less than a month and I canModel entirely in VR! :hammer:

Very much the fucking around stage. Quick fire projects, as they come to me, intended to be half finished if that. Lot of technical stuff to wrap my head around. Need to approach it in bite size chunks.

I'm giving myself about 6 months to get up to speed with the toolkit and then the plan is to create "Spaces" think VR equivalent of desktop wallpaper or ringtones. I reckon these will be a quick kill market when VR kicks off, however many years from now. I want to be in on the ground floor with a site full of - The bridge of the nostromo - and - the city of rivendell - and abstract trip mandala lazor pulsing brain flatteners.

Zuckerberg is right - VR is going to be social as fuck. People going to want places to hang out and do the shit they do in the IRL whilst they're learning the new shit they can do in cyberspace actual. I'ma give them a bunch of free ones and some premium shit they gotta blockchain me for. If I eventually get really good there's the bespoke route. Top dollar for unique, one-off experience.

Not animating per se but this is the result of my first attempt to rig for posing rather than animation. Was going great til I went hipoly and sculpted a whole bunch of detail that became detached from the rig so I had to dump 3 million odd polygons and go back to the base mesh which looks like this

The detail sculpting was only an hours work, been practicing that quite a bit so it's no great loss but the rigging part took ages. Like all these things it'll get better wi practice

Here's some other random shit I've been fucking around with. Learning a whole creation pipeline here from Blender, via photoshop into unreal engine 4.

Badump! Got a desktop PC for the first time in years. Learning how to 3-d art to produce content for VR. Trying to make an spoder for reasons that probably lie buried deep in my subconscious.

Let me put it this way: Hitler is like the clitoris. You don't just go stampeding straight towards it and blow your load; you work your way down, slowly, with forethought and tenderness. Going zero-to-Hitler turns everyone else off unless you have literally the best argument anyone has ever come up with, because people are constantly comparing anyone they don't like to goddamned Hitler.

First of all, you don't know shit about my clitoris and should not fucking talk for everyone even if you aren't a Ron Paul sockpuppet and have a vagina.

Nigelís clitoris was bitten by a cobra and after five days of excruciating pain... the cobra died.

He who laughs last, laughs best. He who laughs at Nigelís clitoris, it's definitely his last laugh.

The easiest way to determine Nigelís clitoris's age is to cut it in half and count the rings

Nigelís clitoris doesn't dial the wrong number. You answered the wrong phone.

Nigelís clitoris knows Victoria's secret.

If Nigelís clitoris was a Spartan in the movie 300, the movie would be called 1.

When Nigelís clitoris swims in the ocean, the sharks are in a steel cage.

Nigelís clitoris will never have a heart attack. Nigelís heart isn't nearly foolish enough to attack it.

Nigelís clitoris once kicked a horse in the chin. Its descendants today are known as giraffes.

Nigelís clitoris doesn't breathe air. It holds air hostage.

Nigelís clitoris can delete the Recycling Bin.

Nigelís clitoris has already been to Mars. That's why there are no signs of life.

Nigelís clitoris can kill two stones with one bird.

Nigelís clitoris's calendar goes straight from March 31st to April 2. No one fools Nigelís clitoris.

Nigelís clitoris wears sunglasses so that itís eyes won't hurt the sun.

If you see Nigelís clitoris crying it will grant you a wish, if your wish is dying.

When Nigelís clitoris works out it doesn't get stronger, the machine does.

Nigelís clitoris does not sleep; it waits.

I'm currently shopping for some kind of personal hidden camera, such as pen cameras, buttonhole cameras, etc. Is there anyone here who has experience with any of these things, and care to make an endorsement?

I initially read this as "butthole cameras" and spent a solid 15-30 seconds pondering the market for that.

I just did exactly the same thing. We're not well, Nigel. Maybe it's unhealthy Freudian associations all the way down. I'm holding years of exposure to LMNO personally responsible  :argh!:

I don't mean to come down on you specifically, but these tag-team style shenanigans are wildly out of place in this thread.

Sorry to disappoint but these tag-team style shenanigans are pretty much the whole board  :lulz:

Have you, by any chance, read The Human Use of Human Beings by Norbert Wiener?

Interesting question. I'm sure there's a reason for it.

If you're interested in the idea of signals or messages as organic, fluid, or essentially "living" things which are subject to the forces of entropy, then cybernetics is an appropriate field of study to immerse one's self in. I was wondering if you'd already done so.

The book reads a bit like stereo instructions but taps into a few really key ideas about the way that information works.

I can't imagine why Pent would be interested in or know anything about cybernetics or information systems. Would you Pent? :lulz:

Nope, I'm just here looking for a charismatic guru :lulz:

I'm sure a lot of other books do to. Your point?

I find the major themes of specific book (and the way in which they are conveyed within it) particularly relevant to your post. I wanted to know if you'd read it. If not, I'd recommend it. If so, I'd ask whether or not you agree that it is indeed relevant.

The only point I can make now is that you haven't actually answered my question.

Yeah, I'm a bastard like that.

Any form of weed testing worth it's salt should include bong rips and enormous t-shaped blunts at some stage in the proceedings.

Yeah, but they won't pay me for that.  :cry:

Sure they will. You just gotta convince them hard enough.
