XCOR - SPACE FLIGHT FOR EVERYONE!
I had the privilege to do some Sound Design for the XCOR VR demo that was shown at the LXRY Fair in Amsterdam this fall. For those unaware: XCOR is a sub-orbital (civilian) space flight initiative, set to launch in 2016. This demo was intended to simulate the experience as close as possible, and was developed in cooperation with Vanguard Games.
The project involved getting the audio to sit right on the built-in earphones of the Oculus Rift, in combination with a Buttkicker Rumble Seat that shares the audio output with the headphones. Because of this shared output, and because of the fact the rumble shouldn't persist beyond a certain point in the demo, it was a bit of a challenge getting this right. Awesome project to work on!
