This Week at HQ

EyeWire HQ is preparing a few cool projects. One of them is a virtual reality experience for use with Oculus Rift in partnership with Microsoft Research. This exhibit will debut in the social space at TED 2014 in Vancouver, BC.

We’ve paused all new feature deployment to focus on site stability and bug fixes. For example, the forum and wiki will be back online soon!

The gamemasters thank you for you participation in and enthusiasm for the EyeWire Winter Games. We’ve listened to your feedback and are working to incorporate your suggestions into our long term plan. Stay tuned soon for a hangout on air with Sebastian Seung to discuss the future of EyeWire.

We’ll see you online at EyeWire.org
