360 Green Screen VR Studio in San Jose.



This Studio is made for 360 deg video and VR180 video,

Normal green screens will not work because of such a large field of view without such a large green screen.

AltSpace VR


This is the youtube clip of the video off my homepage
http://johnsokol.com/~sokol



This is the coolest thing in VR, at least that I've tried.
One thing is though I want to build my world and promote it, share it, it might be
displaying real products and people can place real orders.

In VR I can present products in a much more hand on and intimate way such that users feel they have actually experience the product before a purchase. Depending on the the product of course.




All the objects are imported Unity most are .glb files.
This 2 foot Mosquito was animated and amazing. 


I first had to register the StarGate by creating a Browser with a link to the Herku.com app.



StarGate Command : ttttttt
Chulak : EooFzva
Cold Lazarus : ozhhvHa
Abidos : yMIrtMa       (Uppercase i)


So go find me  I am Star Gate Address ddDBxfa in AltspaceVR.

The most amazing experience on the Oculus Go.

There is a windows client as well, all free BTW.

The windows client is for the Vive but will give you a mouse and keyboard experience on the screen just fine.



A bit more digging on the Mysterious StarGate in Altspace.
https://github.com/microsoft/mixed-reality-extension-sdk/issues/104

The Mixed Reality Extension SDK lets developers and community members extend the AltspaceVR host app's worlds with multi-user games and other dynamic experiences.

And here is the stargates source code:

Still doesn't get me a map of destinations yet. 

The place for events

AltspaceVR is the premier place to attend live shows, meetups, cool classes, and more with friendly people from around the world. All thanks to the magic of Virtual Reality.


Events in the VR space are much better than Zoom, in so many ways.

I think a few small changes and it would be an excellent collaborative environment.


There is a long story behind the company and a place called Rainbow Mansion...
In the end they ran out of Money and Microsoft Bought them.
