Are you ready? Well we’re not, well kind of, well nearly. We’re late… but we are here.
Thanks for your patience. It’s taken us over 2 years from our early VR incarnations and testing with the DK1 to finally be able to publish working products. Big thanks to Oculus VR for igniting the VR industry we are surrounded by today.
We would like to introduce VRGIRLZ
With a Z? First VEIVIEV now a Z!! We needed to stand apart from anything else. VR + GIRLZ seemed fitting. ‘Z’ just to mix things up a little, it is 2015 after all.
VRGIRLZ will feature some very early prototype BVR (basic) products. They are basic in form but grounded in a very solid structure, a sandbox to play in. Something for us to build on. Our next goal is to integrate LEAP hands into the BVR products, no physics but with collision. Having the ability to touch will add a great deal of presence and boost the quality of the products.
Please head on over and register an account with us! Maybe hold off on purchasing, wait until we release a demo tomorrow.
You might think that £5 is a crazy amount of money for what the products are. 10 scans of a female model in a row, flat skin, basic lighting. Whilst this is true, purchasing our products will be kind of like pre-ordering. Supporting us to develop further. You wont believe some of the things we have in mind going forwards into 2016. You can help us make your dreams and ours become a reality. We love what we do. Every single pose has been carefully hand crafted, with 100’s and 100’s of man hours gone into each model. Combined with many months of hard work in code, scripting, scanning, directing, sculpting ….and we have a lot more to offer.
Some notes, that I think will come up from users experiences:
Our products are in early development. They are basic yet set on good foundations, good controls, UI and speed, plus we hope …realistic good looking female models.
- What’s the point?
If you like the female form, you ‘might’ like these products. You can view these female models frozen in time, from any angle and at any size (ICD) you like. You can shrink the world around you and enlarge it, which can create some very unique situations.
- £5?! What a waste, it’s not even a game!
No it’s not game. These are essentially viewers, tools to play with realistic 3D figures. It’s the next evolution of adult entertainment, from cave paintings, to books, to magazines, to black and white film, VHS, DVD, BlueRay, Tubesites …to VR and beyond.
We haven’t made a game, you will paying for the quality and nature of the content, that will improve over time. There’s not much to do in the demos at the moment, the scans aren’t always 100% perfect but they will give a hint of what’s possible.
- They don’t look real!!
Some will look real and some will look OK. Being able to replicate the human form in the digital world has been an on going pursuit of many people, researchers and companies for the last 30+ years. It’s an endless process, it’s not easy, it’s time consuming, it’s expensive. ‘Perfection is unobtainable’ but we can certainly try. Help us succeed. Believe in us and we will deliver for you.
- But they don’t move, what’s the point..
They don’t now but we do have moving versions. We’ve run 100’s of tests and breathing cycle animations prove to be VERY interesting, we’re just not ready to release them yet. Maybe in product version 1.5. The first releases will be version 1.0.
- Uggh.. the hair!
Yes we know. The hair isn’t ideal and we have a solution in place but we are waiting for the next generation of GPU cards to unlock our research in VR. We have the tools, we just need the power.
- Boring backgrounds!!
These are early sandbox environments, we are researching interior rendering and have the methods and content in place that we hope to share very soon.
You can purchase some of the early products by first registering on VRGIRLZ, verifying your email link, then you can add products to your cart. We have a built in credit system on the store which might be a little confusing at first, we are looking to stream line it. We are trying to encourage the purchase of more content.
Each BVR costs £5, if you purchase 1x BVR you will gain 2x credits into your deposit account. Each credit is worth £1. These will then be available to spend on more products. If you purchase 2x BVR products you will gain 4x credits into your deposit account and so on.
Inside the Products
Each product contains a readme file that will explain all controls. In the products we also have a built in ‘Keys/Control’ screen activated by F1. The controls will look daunting at first but they are very intuitive once you get used to them. We hope to go full ‘hands free’ soon 🙂
Don’t forget you can duplicate, rotate and position the models in many different ways!
We will post some demonstration videos over the weekend.
We will have a prompt each time you run a product. It will display “Version XX”. If there is an update available it will say:
New Available Version 1.1
You will then need to log into your account on VRGirlz and you will find the updated download ready in your account section.
Adverts and Sponsorship
We’ve scrapped our old security measures and precise analytic’s tracking in favour of a more open version. In the hope that people wont pirate. As a backup we are hoping to be able to gain advertisement and sponsorship from outside sources to further fund our developments. So you will see some subtle text based advertisement.
We have 4 models available at the moment with limited sets but we have 100’s upon 100’s of poses and outfit changes that we are slowly working through to add the store, with the intention to add 1 new model a month to our growing collection. We already have 2 new models scanned and ready to process in the line. So 6 in total. With support we could scale up, outsource or hire staff and grow slowly to scan more and process more but most importantly have enough room to innovate.
That’s enough from us for the moment. Have a look through the website, see what you think. I would say hold of purchasing anything for the moment, wait until we release a demo which should arrive this time tomorrow. Or you could take the plunge now but again, please bare in mind these products are very limited in scope.
