What are we looking for?
The purpose of the SIGGRAPH 2014 Augmented/Virtual Reality Contest is to encourage developers to create and showcase the best augmented/virtual reality experiences possible using today’s technologies. The contest is open to anyone interested in augmented/virtual reality: researchers, students, hobbyists, and professionals. Contestants can use any software and hardware they choose.
Up to three finalists will be selected to demonstrate their technology at SIGGRAPH 2014, during Real-Time Live! The winning team will then be announced from the Real-Time Live stage!
Oculus VR, Inc, creators of the ground-breaking virtual reality gaming headset, Oculus Rift, will provide Oculus DK2 (development kit 2) headsets to each of the top three finalists. The grand prize winner will receive a DK2 personally signed by Oculus leadership.
All finalists will also have the opportunity to demonstrate their system to attendees during SIGGRAPH 2014's Appy Hour, Wednesday, 13 August, 5:30-7:30 pm.
