Nurulize Takes VR to a New Level at GDC

Nurulize, a leading VR developer, is showcasing a new real-time tech demo for Oculus Rift DK2


Nurulize, one of the leading software developers for virtual reality, has been keeping a dirty secret. This week at GDC it has been showcasing a stunning Oculus Dk2 tech demo, which takes VR to a whole new level.

The tech demo titled RISE is a fully immersive VR experience which takes users through the story of a robot uprising from the perspective of a sentient robot agitator who is currently being held captive. The demo runs at 4K resolutions,  in real time, and boasts the power of Unreal Engine 4.

If you find yourself roaming the halls at GDC, be sure to take a look. However, if you’re stuck at home this video demo will have to suffice for now.

It should also be noted that the RISE Vr experience is built off of a scene featured in David Karlak's upcoming short film with the same name. It was officially kickstarted last year.

      I'll have to watch this when I get home, but it sounds good!

      With all these VR solutions popping up, I hope somebody somewhere is working for a way to make software easily compatible with them all. I don't want to have a fragmented market :(

        Everything I'm hearing shows that most of the software being made to work with the HTC Vive is also set to work as a sit down experience with things like the Rift and stuff.

          That is fantastic news. I guess I just expect companies to always go for the traditional Machiavellian proprietary tech philosophy. It's refreshing when they don't

            Yeah it is. I think trying to limit VR to only one VR platform is crazy dumb. In order to thrive VR needs to work together.

      Could you clarify on the 4k part? The DK2 is only 1080p. Are they downsampling it or using a custom screen or something else?
