OTOY Unveils OctaneVR

From the press release:
Quote
OctaneVR lets artists on any budget create hyper-realistic cinematic experiences for VR and AR using a free, feature-complete version of OTOY’s acclaimed OctaneRender VFX software

This is a complete game-changer. The first company I create will likely be in the VR space, so this technology and future iterations will be extremely valuable in that pursuit.

There is a surprising amount of information in here about the history of OVR.
 
Quote
    Days earlier, to satisfy Kickstarter’s requirements, [Palmer] had used Legal Zoom to file the paperwork for a limited liability company. Iribe convinced him to instead register Oculus VR as a C Corp so the enterprise could take on investors. The older entrepreneur then offered to pay for a professional production team to reshoot Luckey’s modest Kickstarter video. [ ... ]

    The team had planned to ask for $500,000 in funding from Kickstarter’s backers. At the last moment, Luckey got cold feet and lowered the figure to $250,000. He needn’t have worried. Within 24 hours, the Rift had exceeded its goal. In the days ahead, pledges kept on coming. That’s when Iribe realized he wasn’t going back to Gaikai. Neither was Antonov. Or Mitchell. “We didn’t expect to leave our day jobs,” Iribe says. “We thought we’d just invest, help put together the pieces, the investors and advisers, and be on the board.” Instead they seized on the Rift’s momentum to start courting angel investors.
