First Contact - with extreme res - just for the fun and some nostalgia :-)

I guess there's some truth to this quote:

 

"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time"
T.S. Eliot, from “Little Gidding”

 

 

Last night I returned in solid 90 fps with the brute force of the RTX 3090 - and it was an awesome experience. Yes, been there done that - but never like this 😎 About 35 mill pixel per frame (both eyes included):

The gun has many details - check out the fine surface markings

I guess I have the same gun in the Oculus Home - thus Home seems to continue the design from First Contact

High polygon count and tons of objects

Some photos - which can easily be overlooked...

Another fun sticker

The can is quite round - nice poly levels - fun that an app from 2016 looks so much better than many recent VR apps...

Gravity is so incredibly overrated 🙂

I guess we all remember watching this tape ... right? 😁

I don't remember this disc ever looking better 🙂

The ceiling stuff many probably never noticed... but still took devs time to make...

Did you watch this show? 😉

Nice high-res sticker

Some toy up close...

Nearly feels like Christmas - and Lone Echo 2 arrives tomorrow 🤗
