Talk-Chat Show Thing, Episode 2: Stitching, Web VR, and DK2 review

Episode 2 of the eleVR Talk-Chat Show Thing is here! You can find it on our downloads page.

In this episode we talk about the two kinds stitching errors you’re likely to come across: time and space; we give you a quick tour of the new camera head we are trying from 360 Heros; we introduce you to Andrea Hawksley, the developer on our team, and she and I talk state of the VR on web and what part mobile will play. Next we sit Andrea down for a first time look at SightLines newest VR experience ‘The Chair’ and do a review of the DK2. To top it all off we muse on the interesting phraseiness of VR jargon phrase ‘Chromatic aberration’. That and ‘electrolyte,’ cause what fun would it be to have a talk show if we didn’t indulged ourselves in a few diversions.

Having a second episode released, a second episode that was premiered at XOXO over the weekend, makes us the first episodic VR content producers. It’s a small but exciting step for the medium because regularity means production times are coming down making it more feasible to iterate content techniques instead of just focusing on improving technical know how. Also this is probably the best example of 3D spherical video ever released, at this point.
