UBM Releases the VR/AR Innovation Report for VRDC

Recommended Posts

khawk    2925

UBM's VRDC surveyed over 600 professionals in the VR/AR/MR space to get developers' perspectives on the industry and the road ahead. The report findings include:

  • VR will be a profitable, sustainable industry in the mid- to long-term
  • Rise in popularity of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift among developers
  • Platform exclusives are becoming a bit more common

Also of interest is the drop in external funding from angel investors and VC's, and the belief that AR will be more popular than VR in the long-term.

      There are studios selling applications which is just copying any 3Dgraphic content and regenerating into another new window. especially for CAVE Virtual reality experience. so that the user opens REvite or CAD or any other 3D applications and opens a model. then when the user selects the rendered window the VR application copies the 3D model information from the OpenGL window. 
      I got the clue that the VR application replaces the windows opengl32.dll file. how this is possible ... how can we copy the 3d content from the current OpenGL window.
      anyone, please help me .. how to go further... to create an application like VR CAVE. 
       
      Thanks
