Rev VR Podcast (Ep. 150): Ready Player Cosmo
Rev VR Podcast (Ep. 150): Ready Player Cosmo I love having repeat guests, especially when it's Cosmo Scharf. Let's talk about Ready Player One, VRLA, Mindshow, and more. First of all, I want to announce that I am officially changing my name to Reverend Blockchain. It's fitting that Cosmo has also decided to change his name to Cosmo Blockchain at the same time. Did you see Ready Player One yet? We both did, and we give a brief overview of our reactions. We also discuss Mindshow, a wonderfully creative VR tool that allows a user to create their own original cinematic content. Are you attending VRLA 2018 on May 4th and 5th? I am and it is going to be another amazing show for sure. Cosmo and the VRLA gang have chosen to share a 15% discount code for listeners of this podcast.

Rev VR Podcast - 2017 EOY Episode
This is the long awaited Rev VR Podcast - 2017 End of Year Episode As usual, I took some time to go back and listen to my previous years' EOY episodes, so I can see what I predicted, how I spoke about the industry, and think about the evolution of immersive technologies. I came to the conclusion that the idea of a "Year of VR" might need to be redefined, and that our expectations need to evolve. 2017 brought about many changes to the industry, including a huge push of AR, which I discuss at great length during this years EOY podcast. We also got Mixed Reality headsets from Microsoft, I changed jobs, and I made the bold choice to use an iPhone as my daily driver, despite my Android fanboy status. All this and much more in this episode, so enjoy!

2017 Oculus Connect 4 CoffeeCast
It's time once again to sit back, relax, and appreciate the time honored tradition of the post Oculus Connect UberCast. For those of you who are new to the tradition, let me explain it. Starting with the first Oculus Connect, we gather as many podcasters, media, and well-known personalities as we can from the VR community and attempt to record a post-expo wrap-up podcast. In the first UberCast, we were fortunate to have the founder of Oculus, Palmer Luckey, drop in and grace us with his presence. Since that first year, we have attempted to keep the tradition going with several regulars, and as many new folks as we can fit into one recordable venue. This podcast has always been an open forum, with no restrictions as to who can participate. We spread the word, pick a spot, and all are welcome. The tradition has grown. We have done an UberCast at several other expos and conventions as well, and it has become a welcome event conclusion for the VR community. We also try to give each UberCast a unique name that represents how, where, or when it was recorded. This year, we have decided to call it the 2017 CoffeeCast, since the 12 of us ended up sipping coffee and eating brunch-style food at a wonderful (and accomodating) coffee shop in San Jose called iJava. We did the best we could to record and edit the audio for you. Consumption of the UberCasts is best done with headphones or earbuds. Hopefully the fidelity of recording so many people in a busy coffee shop does not deter from your enjoyment of the content. A big thanks to everyone involved, and to Oculus for hosting another great VR event to bring us all together yet again.

Rev VR Podcast (Ep. 146): An Evening With TPCast
Last Friday, I was invited to a demo party at the SURF Incubator here in Seattle, WA to check out the TPCast hardware. In case you aren't aware, TPCast is a wireless solution for virtual reality HMDs, such as the HTC Vive. I was asked to show up early to interview the top execs at TPCast and get some answers about how their hardware works, and how it will solve one of VR's most annoying problems... the cable. After the interview, I had a chance to try out TPCast for myself, and had a great time playing Space Pirate Trainer and Holopoint. Both experiences showed zero additional latency, and other than a quick blip of blue screen, the TPCast seemed to work exactly as they described. Thanks to the folks at TPCast for taking the time to talk to me. I look forward to grabbing a TPCast kit myself and untethering my HMDs.

Rev VR Podcast (Ep. 142): Discussing VRLA & Mindshow With Cosmo Scharf
If you are active in the VR community, then you are probably already familiar with my guest in this episode, Cosmo Scharf. Cosmo, along with some friends, started the VRLA Meetup group, which has flourished into one of the largest full size expos in the industry. Bringing together developers, hardware manufacturers, and content creators in the Los Angeles and Hollywood VR scene have been the driving forces behind Cosmo, and his team's success. Along with his work with VRLA, Cosmo and several others have embarked on a software startup called Mindshow, which is a platform for creating VR content using animation, motion capture, and most importantly, your imagination. Mindshow is a tool for content creators who want a great way to pump out amazing VR stories without having to be expert coders.
