Photoshoot in CAVE2™

Photo Credits: Lance Long

Wearing the first uniform I've ever assembled from scratch. Assembled from Roddenberry Wardrobe Patterns. Turned out rather well considering the last time I did any serious sewing was in middle school - and that was poorly stitched pillow kit.

Also this is probably the first public post featuring the Unity 3D version of the Enterprise in EVL's CAVE2™ Hybrid-Reality Environment.

WTTW airs story on EVL and CAVE2™ System

One of the rare videos that I feel somewhat captures the essence of full user-centered perspective in virtual reality without actually experiencing it.

Development Log: February 22-24, 2013

Completed initial pass on torpedo bay. The torpedo bay length was reduced by about 1/4 to keep the warp core from going though the torpedo bay. There is still enough space behind the back wall to allow a torpedo to slide to the left or right to get around the warp core and into the torpedo launcher. Started second pass on main engineering.

Starship flight and weapons testing. The Enterprise model in this scene was reduced to 30.5 Unity units (from 305 meters) to better scale with the Earth at 127,420 Unity units (Actual Earth is 12,742.0 km) and still have the Moon within recommended Unity world space (within 1,000,000 Unity units ).
