I realize that this might never work because of latency issues, but I know Notch is working on it, so Notch how is it going?

If he won't share a JNI Implementation I'll be making one... which probably means it will suck... might not even work, but I'll do it!

Well, displaying the game won't be the problem, the issue will be the input device. I'll have a look at it as well in a month or so when I get my dev kit 🙂

Ok, good to hear I'm not the only one who is going to use Java!

Out of curiosity what are your projects about? Edit: loading SoF now...

Notch recently posted on his twitter that he couldn't get it to work and that he would "take another swing at it" when he got back from the US.

I can't see any reason why a JNI implementation could not be created. The SDK is not C-style so it's a little more effort than just creating pass through functions, but I can't think of anything that would prohibit a wrapper.

I'm not strictly sure what kind of projects I'll be doing, but I can say it will be more casual gameplay and/or applications. My first test / project will be a chess game. Nothing extraordinary.

Hi, i'm working on Oculus Rift support for jMonkeyEngine, and a step in that process has been making a JNI (my first, in fact).

I've posted the source here: http://www.softwarepioneering.com/

More info on the jme integration here: http://jmonkeyengine.org/forum/topic/oculus-rift-support/
