TasLUG North : Launceston June Meeting
Posted by Cheeseness on 2013/6/11 22:06:39 (472 reads)

Update!

I didn't manage to get a slideshow ready for this meeting, but I did record a first impressions video and write a short article which covers pretty much the same stuf, which you can check out here. Enjoy!

G'day all

This month, we'll be taking a look at what it takes to get an Oculus Rift head mounted display dev-kit behaving on Linux! Note that this talk will mostly be from a development perspective rather than looking at what existing software can be made to work with the Rift under Linux.

2:00pm
Saturday 29th June
Royal Oak
Launceston


As usual, some of us will be meeting for lunch beforehand at 1:00pm.

Hope to see you there!

Thought this might be of interest.
Oculus Rift SDK now supports Linux
