Before Oculus was a company? Cyber, you of ALL PEOPLE, really seem to minimize a thread that you and I were both part of that has a very significant piece of history. Why do you do this? YOU of all? The thread where palmer luckey admits he is an ignorant VR newbie, and begs me for wide FOV hmd leep vr help. The thread where later in public interviews palmer luckey says that my Leep VR help launched the ideas for the rift, the BIRTH of the rift in that moment, by his own admission. Why take that from me and totally disregard that piece of history? I have a family to feed too, but it seems you and palmer and so many others wanted to minimize, erase, or distort that reality, harming me. So lets put your perception of reality to task. Palmer admitted that thread and that leep VR help I gave him was the birth of the rift, do you agree with palmer or do you disagree? Yes or no? http://www.mtbs3d.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=120&t=4123 For the newbies who don't know martinlandau. Really Cyber, why minimize your OWN piece of history where you also were part of this digital shrine that was the beginning of palmers deceptions in VR? (not my claim, the lost court cases where he broke signed contracts and robbed and cheated people) Anyways geekmaster told me to ALWAYS post this quote, because it made palmer luckey very very happy.
@AtariVR has been around the scene for a while. Originally as @martinlandau on the MTBS forums (even before Oculus was a company) then on here as @cleverusername and a few other accounts that all eventually got banned. As far as I know, he is not @Zenbane. I feel bad because I've known him for a while, which is why I am giving him an chance and not auto-banning. However, I do hope he can control himself and things don't get too crazy. I mean, there is nothing in the forum rules against conspiracy theories, and they can be entertaining as long as people don't take things too seriously. But I will keep an eye out and see what happens.
Palmer Luckey - I have found some good links, but I am not sure if they are the ones you were talking about. Would you mind direct linking me to them? (referring to leep vr info that alex howlett took down because too many thiefs/scumbags were pillaging the info and alex told me his dad eric was not getting proper credit - I never got the timeline for when the links went inactive or were changed though, and not sure if even alex ever knew the dates exactly)
Andy you can see very early, cyber basically gave palmer all the goodies, vr920 hmd, Fresnel lenses, helping with the MRG wide FOV - everything that later became the rift. Cyber did you ever send those Fresnel lenses to palmer like he asked in that thread?
The Scandinavian region is definitely up on my list of places to see, if I ever get around to getting a passport. I've had more exposure to swedish people and food, but I've watched more norwegian movies. (Never had anything to do with denmark, but I'm sure they're cool, no pun intended). If I'm in that neck of the woods I'll drop by. 🙂
Summers in Scandinavia are the best in the world. If you happen to make
Oh and happy swedish midsummer to everyone. I'm off in a couple of hours to drink aquavit and eat gravlax and meatballs (and other stuff). No, I'm not swedish (and it's winter here), but I know a person from sweden so it's party time!
it here maybe we could meet for a beer or coffee? I will partake in a
new VR research proposal. We could discuss collaborating. Send me a
private message if you're interested.
Blimey! That was a facinating thread! Thanks. @Cybereality and AtariVR, you really are part of history mateys!
Palmer was/is an Amiga fan! I have not owned or seen an Amiga in a long time but few things have had such an impact on my life as that computer. The Rift is the closet thing I know of that has given me that Amiga feeling back.
It was also interesting to read Palmer. He writes well and has good grammar. That's impressive for his age. He was probably more mature than I gave him credit for.
I also had no idea @cybereality had such a long history with Oculus. He even has his own blog http://cybereality.com/ which everyone else probably already knows about.
