An Italian’s Take on French VR Cereal Gameplay

By Kate

The following blogpost is by Matteo Mannuci, one of the lucky not-in-France recipients of a VR Chocapic cereal box.  Matteo is a practicing architect in Florence, Italy.  I’ve translated his French post to English, and the artwork and photos are his.  Molte grazie, Matteo!

10 p.m.:  Tonight I spent time with one of my best friends and adventure buddies, Luca Aluffi, who also wore his own famous 3D glasses, sent to us by Kate!

Once we cut out and assembled our glasses, we threw ourselves into the game.  My super MacBook Pro had a problem with the plug-in, but with a bit of patience everything worked fine on Windows.  Luca’s little computer beat my powerful MacBook.

The game was excellent!!!! Blam, zam, bling!  The game is so well made and fun, it hypnotized us.  We laughed like children; while the game is very fun to play, it’s also fun to watch Luca playing . . .  Ah! Ah! Ah !

We tried all the levels, and I like the second one the best!!  Thanks again Kate.  We’re ready for the next 3D adventure!


P.S.  Next time will you send us the cereal inside the box too ?  Ah! Ah! Ah ! :p

Harvard Gets Immersive VR with Giza 3D

By Kate

Peter Der Manuelian tells me that Giza 3D at Harvard’s immersive virtual reality Viz Center is up and running, and the 170 undergraduate students in his “Pyramid Schemes” Egyptian archaeology class are loving it!

Here’s a 30 second sneak into the classroom:

And for a more in depth idea of the content being shared and discussed in the Viz Center, here’s a Peter-guided video though and early version of Giza 3D.

I’d love to hear from any of you Harvard students or faculty who’ve tested the experience.  In real life, how is it?

So by now I hope you’ve heard about how seemingly innocent cereal boxes have become 3D game consoles and VR headsets.  Yippee, 3D for all, VR for all!

But wait.  What about The Supergeeks?

We can get picky and say,

“Hey, the red-blue cereal-box glasses are ok for a stereoscopic view, but they mess up my colors!”

Well thank goodness for the 3D  TV and its glasses.

This little video will show you how to VR-a-fy your 3D TV in just a few simple steps.  Check it out:

This VR-cereal-box gameplay is like Kinect, only it’s easier on your budget and you get to eat breakfast too!  ;-)

What do you think about this?
