The entrance, then with good, albeit very hot weather

It’s like nature more than 250 guests of the Meet-up would recall that the real world can be a spectacular addition to the virtual reality. For many tweakers will be on the way witnessed the storms that ravaged Netherlands, whether they were in the comfort of a car or – poor devils – by bike and had to walk down the street.

Ok, nature, point taken: Do you have a better frame rate and higher resolution than current VR headsets and demonstration with lightning is indeed worthwhile. But the fact remains that during the Meet-up, which took place in the fan-building on the campus of the University of Twente in Enschede, was nice enough to see the various virtual worlds.

The first brave tweaker who entered the seat, Ronald, remarked to his great pleasure that for the purpose of the whole hall during the demonstration flight not only virtually but also physically over the head went into the seat.

Virtual Dutch Men had brought the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, which visitors such as the catchy game Space Pirate Coach could try. The fanaticism with which some held their virtual shields for themselves and virtual space ships were trying to shoot was actually hilarious.
