This VR020 meetup we have invited Simon van Cleeff (Business Development Director Capitola) to talk about how Capitola is conquering the Virtual Reality market. Capitola is a Dutch innovation driven agency (based in Amsterdam 🙂 embedding the latest ideas and technologies in campaigns and digital product development. An open space were coders and creatives are blending technology and creativity on the spot. They don’t just talk but prototype. That’s what keeps them and their clients ahead of the game. 

As soon as the Oculus Rift Dev Kit 1 came out, Capitola started experimenting with the technology. Today a team of 22 designers and developers are working continuously on exploring the possibilities with VR and developing campaigns for their clients. Besides 360 video they create fully immersive and interactive 3D gyroscopically worlds. Both from a creative technical and a marketing point of view. This varies from hybrid apps to campaign websites and immersive virtual reality projects.

Next to Capitola’s projects, Simon will also share what learnings he has come across in Virtual Reality and what he expect to happen in the future. And as always we will have much room for questions and discussions (and beers), because that makes these meetups so much fun! 

Special Presentation & Hololens Demo

Due to the Unite Conference in the city Morph3D is in town. They will give a short presentation on how to create high quality human figures for VR. 

Furthermore they will do demo’s with the Hololens (how cool is that?!) and GearVRs. 

GearVR Lottery

There will be one GearVR for the lucky attendee at the meetup (sponsored by Morph3D)! So make sure you are there at the beginning of the meetup to get your ticket that we will draw after the presentations!

A Lab Workhotel

A lab has kindly offered that you can use their Co-Working space (called the ‘Work Hotel’) during the day. So before the meetup you can come and work at the meetup location!

"To begin with, Virtual Reality is a part of computer science and it represents a new approach to computer science. Instead of treating the computer as a box that's out there that is supposed to accomplish something, you put a human being in the center and say, "Let's look at the human being closely. Let's see how people perceive the world or how they act. Let's design a computer to fit very closely around them, like a glove, you might say. Let's match up the technology to exactly what people are good at.""
