Thank you to all of the organizers of Cinekid and the audience members who voted for our installation. Amsterdam was quite the appropriate city to launch PaperDude VR’s world tour — let’s just say they didn’t have an issue getting us a bike to use locally!
Hi PaperDude Enthusiast! We’re notifying you because you signed up to receive updates on Globacore’s PaperDude VR Oculus Rift experience… and we have updates…
We’re proud to announce the PaperDude VR World Tour!
Over the last couple of months since we launched the original video we’ve been busy at work improving the system and getting it ready for prime time. Our first few test events went well at FITC Screens, Toronto Unity Developers Group, and Touch Vancouver.
In two days from now we will be switching on the virtual lights at Cinekid Festival in Amsterdam… We can’t think of a better place on the planet to kick-off the tour other than the bike-friendliest city in the world! Of note — The Dutch translation of PaperDude is amazing http://www.cinekid.nl/festivalprogram/entry/6974 and we hope you have a chance to check it out if you happen to be in town between October 17th and October 25.
After Cinekid Amsterdam, we’re packing our bags for…
* DPX Digital in Halifax October 22-26 http://halifaxpopexplosion.com/digital/
* EventTech Las Vegas Nov 4-6 http://eventtech.eventmarketer.com/
* Engadget Expand in NYC November 9-10 http://www.engadget.com/expand/about/
…and a possible appearance at CES — stay tuned for Details!

From the bottom of our virtual hearts — Thank you for all of your support! The PaperDude VR trip has been one very exciting ride so far — we hope you get a chance to join us for a roll down 8-bit suburban memory lane!
