AOVR Posted March 11, 2017 Report Share Posted March 11, 2017 (edited) Hello, Hypography, We would like to setup a new group to work in the VR field. We aren't going to shout about how we're making a "NerveGear" which is a fictional device. We aren't going to say we're going to beat DARPA. We aren't going to claim we're the best. We've looked at past groups and seen a lack of coordination, a lack of maturity/focus, unreasonable goals, sometimes they say they want to exist and then fade... We've considered all this so we don't repeat the past. We are here to do actual work, focusing on reasonable deadlines, so we can grow, learn, and try to be a part of the VR boom. Our first order of business exemplifies that. The first goal for our group is simple. Looking at existing designs but without copying from them, we will try to design (and build) a dry EEG headset for testing use within our group. The circuitry to amplify the power signals, the microcontroller code, the data bridge to the computer, the library to use said bridge with… The largest component we want to use is an AtMega with no software on it. This sounds lackluster but can be a challenging task, from scratch. It will test our coordination as a team and being able to say, "We did it!" will feel great. It's a statement that we can do something, despite being small and made up of people from the internet. We encourage all to join, yet we are trying to keep our group small and do actual work, so we will ask for a bit of info about you (skillset and such). I hope that can help show how serious we are. We won't take anyone purely for numbers. Here is a link: https://discord.gg/duE6tpd We hope people do care about joining, and also hope that this isn't in violation of the rules (self-promotion isn't allowed yet this ontopic, has plenty of precedent, and is about creating a group with above ideals and a quick Discord we set up; nothing to promote except the concept). We have no intent to cause trouble :) --The AOVR Founders Edit: *"AOVR. A New Group." I hate when typos slip past you on launch day. They make you seem so unprofessional...
