Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!
Unity Technologies has announced Vision Virtual and Augmented Reality Summit. A conference that is focused on the development of Virtual and Augmented Reality products.
The main point of the conference is to bring together artists, engineers, programmers, designers, musicians, directors, producers, hardware manufacturers, researchers and innovators. Together they will explore the potential of these emerging platforms.

Vision Summit will feature talks and panels aimed at expanding knowledge and creating discussions on a wide range of topics including conceptual and practical design, technology deep dives, and new challenges facing developers such as interface design and implementation and creating fully immersive experiences.
VR and AR promise to change the way we interact with technology and entertainment. Vision Summit will bring the best minds together to discuss how the great potential in these technologies can be realized.
