It was a great experience being at the 72nd World Science Fiction in London from August 14th to 18th 2014! ( http://www.loncon3.org )
So many crazy and unique people all passionate about science fiction. Paradise for a scifi author.
Actually I sold some English book versions of my novel GameW0rldz as paperback and ebook version on a USB stick.
And I sold some 3D scans of scifi fans.
But the most exciting thing was there were over 150 visitors to my 3futurez holodeck demo. Almost everybody was
impressed by this little animation. Many comments were: “Amazing”, “That is really cool”, “wonderful”.
All was done in Blender 3D. The demo was then ported to unity 3d by uniworlds.de .
The ease of usage was one important point. You just put the VR glasses on and can behave naturally in the
world suddenly surrounding you. Just turn your head and you look at the lady dancing between those radio telescopes.
A very few people felt a bit dizzy but especially younger ones adapted really quickly to the surrounding scene.
I had to stop some people from walking around while being blind in the real world but no major accidents happened.
Alas the Loncon is over now. But the game for the 3futurez holodeck musical is on.
Thank you very much for your visit and the very important honest feedback on my demo.
If you also want to get an impression of the holodeck demo you can get it by watching the Loncon 3 mini trailer:
