The bright future of virtual reality The consumer version of the Oculus Rift, one of the most popular virtual reality (VR) headsets to-date, is now available for pre-order on the Oculus website. This means consumers are now one step closer to fully immersive virtual reality on their computers, however we still have a long way to go until VR becomes mainstream. A few months ago, our office purchased an Oculus Rift developer kit because we wanted to experience the technology first-hand and see if it really was what it was hyped up to be. One of the partners here at Elevator Fund tasked me with brainstorming what could be done with it, so I went from computer to computer, and to my dismay, I was unable to get it working. It was not due to lack of effort, but rather a lack of computing power. the Gloves Dr Adam Stark is the co-founder of the interactive arts technology studio Codasign and a post-doctoral researcher at the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary University of London. He is interested in developing new ways to create music through interactive technology. In particular, he wants to make electronic music performative and engaging to watch on stage, working with artists and musicians to integrate interactive technologies into their shows and installations. He has been interested in music since childhood, growing up playing in bands in and around London. In 2002 he chose to study Computer Science at Royal Holloway, University of London, spending those years equally divided between learning how to develop technology and writing & performing music with other students. He later went on to study for a MSc in Digital Music Processing at Queen Mary University of London, specialising on audio effects that can automatically detect the tempo of performing musicians.
