Shadows of Isolation

Shadows of Isolation Shadows of Isolation, a Virtual Reality trailer, is a lucid dream like journey through an ever changing worldscape. Exploring urban isolationism and the replacement of nature with technology, it uses VR as an installation space, stepping outside of the traditional gallery/museum model to distribute immersive art freely to the masses.

Shadows of Isolation2 During the experience, the you’ll be fully immersed in different themed environments, some pass through, others stop and walk, swim, or fly around. The current twelve scenes vary from asteroid fields in outer space to underwater with whales to elephant stampedes, even base-jumping off a Hong Kong building. We’ll continue to add-on to the piece as an ever-evolving artwork, eventually integrating additional peripherals such as scent emitters, EEG, fans, and body tracking.

Shadows of Isolation3Shadows of Isolation can be experienced via game controllers, keyboard, and/or positional tracking. The most robust control scheme is a new positional tracking system we designed specifically for this experience. It utilizes the users’ bodies as controllers for navigating the virtual world, simply leaning in the direction they want to move and rotating their body to face any direction. This control method vastly reduces VR sickness and increases the sense of persistence. Anyone can utilize this control system by altering the DK2 setup by mounting the positional tracking camera directly above head.

Robbert As some of you may know, I have been suffering from the aftermath of a traffic accident, a severe case of COVID-19, and a transient ischemic attack (TIA). These events have taken a toll on my physical and mental well-being, and I can no longer keep up with the demands of running a VR website and channel. I want to thank you all for your support and feedback over the years. You have been an amazing community and I have enjoyed sharing my passion for VR and gaming with you. I hope you will continue to enjoy VR and explore its possibilities. I will leave the website and channel online for now, so you can still access the content I have created. However, I will not be posting any new blogs, videos, or news. I hope you understand and respect my choice.
