Short history of Geometrify
Development of Geometrify started in 2013 December when our CTO Sakari saw the possibility of introducing geometrical experiences in Virtual Reality utilizing the Oculus Rift DK1, extending the work he had done on http://GeoKone.NET.
Hoping to prove an easier way to access and share the interesting effects he had felt while working with natural, sacred geometry, during the development of GeoKone.
Sakari immediately saw the potential of sacred geometry in Virtual Reality when testing the Oculus Virtual Reality headset. He started working on the native, VR version in beginning of 2014 and in June 2014 Sakari had the first demo ready, together with music from Miika Kuisma.
The first event where Geometrify was publicly demoed was at Assembly Summer 2014, where Sakari was speaking about the effects of creating recursive, natural geometry can have on our state of consciousness. See the video below:
After this, our to-be super fractal connector Tommi Ullgren took the demo with him to Buddhist Geeks meeting in Boulder, Colorado, and really saw the enthusiasm of people testing our demo there.
After this trip, Tommi came up with the name ‘Geometrify‘ (Geo-Me-Tri-Phi) and contacted Sakari. From this point on forwards we have been working on making Geometrify a reality.
After Assembly’14, we have demoed at over 20 different events already, showing our demo to maybe over 1000 people already (many of whom this was their first virtual reality experience) and sharing the vision we want to build.
Memories from the road
We are now opening our development and news blog, and we want to start by sharing some images from our events where we have been demoing:
So here you can have an idea what we have been up to, all the while developing Geometrify and our custom 3D Sacred Geometry engine at the same time.
It’s been one big adventure already, but most of the work is still to be done. We are now almost ready with our base technology to ramp up our development, and we will update this blog with out progress from now on.
This has been only the beginning
Here’s for a good start in being more open, transparent and brave about what we want to achieve. Our intent is to create software that let’s people see within themselves, and to let people experience the power of sacred geometry themselves, through a direct experience of creating it themselves.
While Geometrify is being developed still, be sure to check out it’s predecessor http://GeoKone.NET, for creating Sacred Geometry in your browser.
This was Sakari, Chief Technology Originator of Geometrify, signing off now.
