Over the last couple of months I’ve been working with Quantum Capture on a virtual reality training application for trauma center doctors at Sunnybrook and SickKids here in Toronto. This proof-of-concept simulation has you go through a fibreoptic intubation on a patient using your hands to feed the scope down the patient’s throat, while you look on a monitor to see what the scope sees.

There has been a lot more going on at Quantum Capture that I’ve been involved in, with a focus on programming virtual humans. Bloomberg TV Canada dropped by the Quantum Capture office, and their video provides a great overview:

Designing the Digital Humans Inside Your VR Headset

A game prototype I’ve been working on with Quantum Capture will be on display at tonight’s Wearables 2016 AR/VR mega-event.

In Vega you are a convict doing time on a space elevator, ensuring that the cargo containers destined for the mothership are safe. Made with Unreal Engine 4, and played on the HTC Vive.

At Wearables 2016 you’ll be able to play through the 10 minute experience, leading up to its dramatic ending.

Turtle VR is coming to the HTC Vive and Steam VR.  In fact, it will be expanded beyond what is available for the Oculus DK2 and Razer Hydra, including new environments, new command blocks, and more examples.  Below you may see Turtle VR running on the Vive with an updated Grove level, optimized for the higher resolution and 90fps required.
