Our New Lizard Friend
For SIGGRAPH 2018, we decided to do a VR experience with an audience. Although we have not yet moved away from VR, recently we have been testing how AR could excel at being a platform for storytelling as well. I placed a lizard character in the center of our lab walking around and holding a spear. When I put on the headset and first looked at him, I was rather taken aback at how menacing he seemed walking around with his weapon. This is definitely a pro. However, currently due to latency problems, this may not yet be a platform we would like to dive into yet. More to about this to come in the following weeks! In the meanwhile, I hope he enjoys his stay at our lab and finds it hospitable enough! Hehe.
