MN VR and HCI Member Project Night 2016
A lot of new projects and/or new members have been appearing at meetings recently. So, we thought it would be fun to get a quick show and tell on as wide a variety of projects as possible (Not only VR, not only games, etc.)
Presentations will be fast (5-10 min timed), and informal – with some type of visuals being mandatory. Recently completed projects, incomplete/WIP, interesting graphics, shaders or HCI experiments are all encouraged.
Here’s who’s confirmed so far. Grab a Presenter ticket, and we’ll add you to this list:
There is nearby street parking and surface lots. Parking right in front of Vidku costs more. Try the lots at 1st and Washington (both sides of Pixel Farm), and 3rd and Hennepin (behind Vidku.) Bring cash. Small bills. Unmarked.
6:30 Social, setup and pizza – Thanks Vidku!
7:00 Kickoff, Plug My Thing
8:45 Wrap up, head to Red Cow
The Vidku projector has a full-size HDMI only for input for video and audio. You’re encouraged to put slides, pics or video online – then use the shared PC laptop running chrome. No thumb drives please. Video doesn’t need to be great/captured – use your phone.
Talks will be strictly timed. Plan for a 5-7 minute presentation max, including setup. Previous presenter will do Q&A while you set up. Run through your presentation once with a clock – don’t be like Zach 🙂
If you find yourself wanting to show more stuff, we’re always looking for presenters for our regular format. Do both!
Plug My Thing!
In addition to informal verbal plugs, we’ll also show your trailer, user group, recruitment page, promo video, personal project, demo reel, etc. Grab the appropriate ticket – first come, first served.
Short and sweet. 3 minutes max! You will be timed.
1 short URL, Zero setup (any media on reliable site like YouTube, Vimeo, etc.)

Check in 5-10 minutes early, so we can load your page
