Familab path to VR
« on: September 23, 2016, 09:49:32 PM »

[[Treasurer edit: Current balance is: $815 received, $75 pledged, out of $1200. (We require the business edition to comply with licensing, which is $1200 instead of $800.) ]]


I am almost finished building a sweet i7 machine for VR. I want to lease this to the lab and for the lab to invest in a HTC VIVE Headset as soon as we can make this work. Later, the lab will replace my machine with its own epic build. This can happen in the near term with a two phase plane.


Phase 1- Aquire headset. Lease machine. Maximize lab awesomeness.


1.Headset Fundraising


VIVE VR Headset Goal - $800 + Tax


(Me - $75)
(Add your name and amount!)

2. Lease Lazarus's Machine (hopefully just 3-6 months)


Lease amount - $1 month


Machine Specs:


Intel i7
32GB RAM
240GB Solid State
2TB 7200
nVidia GTX 1070




Roll around floor like you are Ted in Virtual Reality!




Phase 2 - Raise money for Epic lab VR / Adobe / 3D Design machine


This will be an epic build. It will be the lab?s flagship machine for 2D/3D Design, Video Editing/Motion Graphics, VR Development, and VR content.


This will be a machine that should compare to the one being leased. (This is important)


1. 10+ members to commit to pay $10-15 extra a month for 6 month period.


(Me)
(Add your name and amount!)


2. Donation recommended VR Parties.


3. Other one-time donations.

A member has just contributed $50.

(I moved this to crowdfunding to make life a little easier.)

Aside from the last remaining pledge, which was covered separately, this campaign is closed and the Vive purchased.
