Welcome to Cymatic Software! Right now, CymaticSoft is just me. I am looking to make fun and interesting games and interactive experiences.
So what’s in the oven?
I am tinkering with UDK, the Razer Hydra, and the Oculus Rift dev kit. Lots of ideas, but no definite plans yet.
Here you will find info about my development process, links to useful resources, and media of works in progress.
This site is part tutorial, part journal, and all heart!
My name is Bert “Cymatic Bruce” Wooden. I am currently employed as Program Director for The Tech Museum Summer Camps in San Jose and Technology Curriculum Writer for Galileo Innovation Camps located in the San Francisco Bay Area. My history is varied: I have managed game stores, worked tech support at SCEA, taught video game design, developed museum exhibit science content, written and delivered science curriculum. My educational background is in physics. I have always been interested in game design and VR, but have been mostly involved in the science education field since 2008.
Once the Rift hit, I knew I would want to contribute to this resurgence of VR. Months ago, I began brushing up on my development skills in preparation. Once I received my dev kit, I posted some first impressions videos as a part of my personal documentation of my dev experience. One thing led to another, more videos were posted, and then the stories about my VR adventures were in the gaming press. Life hasn’t been the same since! I am now a “VR Vlogger” and guest contributor to the VR news site Road To Virtual Reality.
I believe that VR is a new medium with wide applications, and we are currently standing at the ground level of a shift in consumer technology. I am currently evaluating what role I will play as this industry grows. I am open to discussions on collaboration and consulting, and I am excited to find what new opportunities lie ahead in the field of VR experiences!
