Yet more Hawaii in VR

posted in Virtual Reality by Cargo Cult on Tuesday June 27 2017

Please excuse the recent lack of Sunday Things. I've been busy. Also, forgetful. I've been building up a nice stockpile of links, though...

Meanwhile, have some more virtual Hawaii. If anyone was concerned about the sudden outbreak of pleasant scenery and tropical paradise in the last captured slice of volcanic island, have some dry wilderness with some ancient carvings in the long-hardened lava - with some Woodlands near Puakō Petroglyph Field, Big Island, Hawaii. Even includes ambient audio recorded on site, with bloody loud and repetitive birds chirruping and squawking away.

Not as big as usual since I've got a smaller monitor at home. Of course, if you need life-sized, click on the SteamVR Workshop link. It has LASER MEASUREMENT ACCURACY. Also an ineffectual attempt at GPS geotagging.

The ground worked really well. Foliage up above is still problematic. I have ideas to counter this in future.

Interestingly, I did all processing and cleanup for this scene on my home PC (and laptop) - which means this whole conspiracy to get people to look at my holiday photos can continue indefinitely.

And yes, of course I captured some other increasingly apocalyptic scenes when I was in Hawaii. Don't act all surprised!
