Annual Building Virtual Worlds Festival

Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) was proud to host it’s 15 annual Building Virtual Worlds Festival on Wednesday December 3.

Approximately 400 guest, including industry representatives,  prospective students, family and friends joined in for the festivities.  This year, we were especially honored to welcome CMU president Subra Suresh and his wife Mary as our guests.  This year’s festival featured 21 interactive worlds that where created the Building Virtural Worlds (BVW)  class this fall semester.  The guests had the opportunity to test their skills using interactive platforms such as the Oculus Rift, Tango, Kinect  to experience the student’s worlds.

The industry guest included representatives from WDI, Target Innovation Center, Schell Games and Oculus Rift.  We were also happy that Dan Moskowitz, the first TA for the BVW class was able to join us.  Dan is now working for Oculus Rift and gifted a development kit (DK2)  to ETC first year student Han (Hannah) Liu.
