Creating software for Creators

Would you like to feel like a Creator ?

 

Feeling I want to Create with Geometrify Creator

Feeling I want to Create with Geometrify Creator

This picture (by http://sacredvisions.co.uk) pretty well sums up the feeling of the software that I want to build. It will be called Geometrify Creator, and to over simplify things I’m going to describe it as Geokone 2.0 + 3D for now.

 
Native speed OpenGL, VR support, Intuitive Touch/Motion Interface.
Designed to be so easy to use that a child can understand and feel the fun, and learn geometry and math in practice while doing it, supported with visual cues and realtime feedback of what is happening on every action.
 

No luck with funding

For the past year, we have been building this vision and demoing our concept / tech demo for the Oculus Rift DK1 at various events ranging from biohacking events in Finland, psychedelic gatherings at Ozora Hungary and consciousness hacking meetups in Silicon Valley, USA.

It’s been one big adventure and lesson in just letting go and flowing with whatever comes, and dedicating myself for the cause of building something that will blow peoples minds.

This has been proven with the DK1 -demo already, but what has been difficult has been the realization that I cannot build this vision alone, and we don’t have the resources to hire another fulltime programmer to help.

Making it happen

I’ve been fortunate enough to be on this path for 3 years already, first building GeoKone.NET into a more finalized state and now focusing on bringing a VR -supported version of new version of this vision into reality.

Too bad dedication is not enough, and I am now running out of money. How to continue working on this and figuring out a place to get income or funding is now really pushing me. I really wish a person would come that could give us 30,000 euros right now so we could continue working on this, but if this doesn’t manifest into reality, I really have to start thinking about getting a day job again.

Planning right now just to release everything we have done with Geometrify, like the Oculus Rift DK1 -demo we have now demoed at least to 1000 people already, and also our unfinished DK2 -demo which we never got ready.

Technical Challenges

It turns out building a custom 3D engine from scratch is pretty freaking difficult! Especially being the only one programming it.

I have a strong reasoning to build our own tech, because we have such a specialized case of generating geometry on the fly, and I see many use cases for such an engine. My vision spans 10 years, not just one application in one place.

Everything has been designed in such a way that this geometry engine, called PsiTriangle Engine for now, can be added to many different projects where recursive, interactive, living GeoKone.NET style recursive natural geometry is needed.


Also, I really want to understand everything about the process and not just use some ready made engine. This means a steep learning curve, but on the long run I will win through sheer perseverance and deep understanding what is happening on a hardware level of things.

Wanting to share the knowledge

I trule believe that Sacred Geometry represents the structure of the world we live in, and by understanding that structure, we can understand so much more of the world we live in.

This is my goal, to share this knowledge. I wish it was easier, but seems creating anything different than what people are used to doing, is met with great resistance on some subconscious level.

Its not safe, it’s not another Call Of Duty or another ‘match 3’ game, it’s something different. And seems many people are not ready for that. I hope to find those people who are ready for this.

Moving On

I have still held back in communicating this more honestly and directly, so now I feel is the time to really start just putting the vision out there and not care what some stuck up businessmen think about it.

With Geometrify we have tried too much to fit our vision into something existing, when I feel it is time to just be brave and communicate more from the heart what we want to create.

Anyway. I just wanted to shortly update what is going on right now and what I have been thinking. Will be updating more when I get more of what I want to down on paper.
