Kite & Lightning's The Cave


The Cave is a Art & Tech demo we created to test out:

  • 3D Holographic UI in VR
  • Realistic 3D Scans of people
  • How to port our existing art production pipeline

We're really excited about creating interactive narratives for VR and we've been R&Ding our process for creating hyper-realistic 3D scans of people and ultimately entire performance captures. Our goal is to make it easy so that everyone can go out and quickly capture 3D content for their own VR experiences.

So, here's our first demo that we created for the rift that includes a UI inspired by Iron Man and a 3D human capture of one of our friends. It's a proof of concept so it took us ~3 weeks to hack together but we think it still looks pretty badass.

If you want to keep track of our progress, check out our blog at or follow us on twitter:

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit or 32-bit Processor
