Oculus Rift development

No two ways about it, we love exploring our technology and being at the forefront of new technical developments. It fuels our enthusiasm for new possibilities and pushing the boundaries.

Few emerging projects have excited us more than the B2B applications presenting themselves with the stereoscopic virtual reality which Oculus Rift makes possible. We’re one of 3,000 developers worldwide who’ve managed to get our hands on the first Oculus Rift developer kits.

If you’ve not yet heard of Oculus Rift, it’s dis-orientingly realistic virtual reality.

Virtual reality has largely gone off the table since the 90s. The development of the Internet, broadband and mobile communications have all surpassed it.

But now with motion and gesture controls everywhere, as well as a host of crowdfunded projects, virtual reality is truly getting off the ground with relatively inexpensive technology making commercial projects for business and the mass market a real possibility. We’ve also helped crowdfund Stem System wireless motion tracking as well as the Omni Virtuix omni-directional treadmill allowing for realistic motion in a virtual landscape.

From air swipes/gestures on mobile phones to Kinect controllers for the Xbox and Leap Motion technology (yet another thing we’re playing with) it seems that the time is right for virtual reality to start making its way in the real world.

We have just launched a new app to help reduce waiting times in hospitals across Devon and Cornwall. The app, NHSquicker, allows people to view up-to-date waiting times for local emergency departments and minor injuries units. It also provides information regarding distance and time to different treatment centres, based on the user's location. Reactor15 have been working with Exeter Health and Care IMPACT Network, a collaboration between the NHS across Devon and Cornwall and academics from the University of Exeter to build an app which is widely available for smartphones and tablets, on Apple and Android. The NHSquicker app took six months to build and is a fully native app developed using our own custom framework. Using a native platform which allowed us to build a fast, responsive and reliable experience to users, when accuracy and speed of information is very important. The app also provides information about less urgent NHS services, including GPs, pharmacies, sexual health services, dentists and opticians. Mike Saunders, Managing Director of Reactor15 said: "It’s great, once again, to be involved in building a really useful NHS tool. We were asked to build an app which will not only help reduce waiting times in our local hospitals but will also help patients make the right choices with regards to how and where they receive their treatment. We believe our native app platform is both robust and versatile enough to meet the needs and brief of Exeter Health and Care IMPACT Network." Reactor15 have a good working relationship with the NHS and have already built the award winning HANDi Paedatric, POPs apps and the Devon and Wakefield Formularies. NHSquicker can be downloaded on iTunes and Google Play.
