16:27:53 From Fabien Benetou : funny
16:29:35 From Fabien Benetou : I say “funny” a bit dismissively because even though I (obviously) like the concept I believe most of us do it already in a way (specific music ambiances and cafes) and ironically most reMarkable user do NOT want to be facing a desktop. computer or
16:29:53 From Fabien Benetou : (thanks for sharing though, somehow missed it)

16:35:40 From Brandel Zachernuk : ooo a Near Future Lab guy made a cool thing called Proximo to build stories like this:

16:35:52 From Peter Wasilko : I am also happy to report taking a baby step into VR by getting a Google Cardboard headset that I can slip my 7th gen iPod Touch into.
16:37:57 From Fabien Benetou : it’s actually pretty straighforward with the right data and the right library, either timeline or POIs on map (OSMap is free and has a good API) and synchronizing both is not particularly challenging.

16:40:40 From Fabien Benetou : but wasn’t in VR, rather for VR.

16:41:17 From Fabien Benetou : no idea if can easily be extended to 3D/VR or if it’s been done before.

17:07:24 From Peter Wasilko :

17:08:07 From Fabien Benetou : I have the small one, LKG Portrait and waiting for the 8K too, suggestions welcomed.
17:08:56 From Fabien Benetou : Works really well but only horizontally and in a small perspective so nowhere near as nice as 6Dof VR IMHO.

17:09:15 From Peter Wasilko :

17:09:35 From Fabien Benetou : Yes that’s the small one.

17:34:02 From Fabien Benetou :

17:34:07 From Fabien Benetou :

17:40:26 From Fabien Benetou : Beside being an app is Noda open source?

17:42:57 From Mark Anderson : Sadly no. It’s an app (free) on Oculus with some pay (subscribe) features—e.g. importing CSv. Open source code – no. I mainly tried it because (a) it’s the only Oculus app offering such functionality and I didn’t have to build the tech stack, such as others here have the expertise to do for themselves.
