1st prize : Virginia Tech (again!)
Great idea of “building” the pieces instead of choosing them among all the pieces !
2nd prize : Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of British Columbia
They used their great pCubee display !
3rd prize : Hasselt University
I love their VR system : optical tracking of AR patterns, semi-transparent mirror enabling colocated interaction (à-la Personal Space Station), and no buttons for interaction !
It’s also probably quite cheap to build !
All the video entries can be found on the contest webpage.
(Be sure to check the CubTile by Immersion 😉
You can see last year’s winners here.
Congratulations to all the entries
What I particularly like about this contest is that it quickly gives you a lot of good ideas about both interactions and systems, and to realize that more and more people are building their own VR systems 🙂
