My good friend +Philip Day  has been working on a Unity project for a customisable stereoscopic fulldome player using an Oculus Rift. He's released an Alpha version to get some feedback from the community to help development. 

Download the player project and an Oculus Rift version of Vortex here:

http://www.luniere.com/2014/03/09/vortex-vr-a-unity-fulldome-3d-player-for-the-oculus-rift/

If you use the player for anything or have any ideas for it's development. Links are on the page to get in touch. Or alternatively G+ him.

I've been making a dome at home in my spare time. It's rough and ready but it's proving very useful for quick tests even its current state. 

Currently two blog posts on it.

Building the dome: http://www.luniere.com/2013/07/24/diy-dome-building-a-geodesic-monodome/
Building the base and setting up the projector: http://www.luniere.com/2013/08/30/diy-dome-first-light/

Any tips are welcome.

yeah, my setup requires bespoke warping. I can play a standard warped image okay, but the distortion isn't perfect. There are some youtube clips using standard distortion but not many.

I think there is a way to use Domeview to grab streamed videos and warp in realtime to an external monitor actually. Might be worth me looking at.

Production techniques and tools  - 
 
This is breakdown of all the software, hardware and production techniques I used to create v.02... An immersive stereoscopic exhibition where the audience controls the environment they are in. I've also included some working files to help explain the spherical mapping techniques.

Not quite "fulldome" but the techniques I'm using are totally transferable to a dome environment.

+Dave Pentecost yeah... I'll make sure we document exactly how we do it in the end. I've been playing with Unity recently as well, so I might want to pick your brains a little on that soon.

Should be a standard thing in the home already really.

Portrait of Stefan Berke

I have done a few sketches of Stefan now and tried to capture his continuously morphing geometry. This is the only way I can visualise his unobservable form.

I first met Stefan Berke at Fulldome UK 2012, although I had seen his work several times before. He’s a tall German guy who looks like a self portrait of Egon Schiele. His face is an expression of reality made from shards of a polymorphic material. We spoke a lot about fulldome and his work with modular audio graphics. We drank and watched SAT perform live at the Sir Patrick Moore planetarium. In the niche work of creative fulldome, we have a lot in common.
