Things are continuing to pickup for BlackCherry this year. Interesting new projects underway. What really excites me are some of the new technologies we’ll soon be introducing to our work in both the casual and educational game spaces.
Probably the most exciting is Oculus VR http://www.oculusvr.com/, an amazing virtual reality rig that appeared on Kickstarter last year. We are hoping to finally have our hands on a developer kit in the next month or so. I think this is going to have incredible potential for our games in both the casual and educational spaces.
We’ll be pairing Oculus up with the Leap Motion controller https://www.leapmotion.com/. The two combined should create some awesome new possibilities. We’ll share our progress as work begins on these new projects with these amazing new technologies.
While we are on the subject of new technologies, here’s one more I’d like to share. Pretty sure I’ll have my hands on one of these soon too http://celluon.com/products.php. Maybe for more mundane pursuits than the tech above, but I’ve gotta have one.
Strange but it does feel like, in the last year, fact is finally catching up with fiction.
