ORLANDO, Fla. — Sundog Software, which developed the Triton Ocean SDK software library to power military software by depicting ocean wave and current action with startlingly realistic clarity, has just released a gaming version for the Oculus Rift 3-D VR gaming headset.
Frank Kane, founder and chief executive officer of Sundog Software, said the firm teamed up with AgileSrc, LLC in Orlando to create the newest version of Triton Ocean SDK software.
“The Oculus Rift headset allows the user to turn 360 degrees to see everything that is created in a game’s virtual world,” Kane said. “That presented certain opportunities for us and, with the aid of AgileSrc, we adapted Triton Ocean SDK to create a whole new level of realism when it comes to oceans, lakes, and seas,” Kane said.
Sundog Software’s Triton Ocean SDK, distributed worldwide, is already a mainstay in training simulator software for naval and air forces. Triton Ocean SDK depicts ocean wave and current action that is so realistic that Kane worries some users will feel seasick.
“Water surfaces don’t behave symmetrically, yet there are patterns that seem symmetrical and they all interact,” Kane said. “Depicting them realistically was a challenge, but Triton Ocean SDK manages to coordinate the chaos of the ocean in a way that users find extremely realistic,” he said.
Kane said Sundog Software’s Triton Ocean SDK for Oculus Rift on the Unity platform is available for sale immediately.
Sundog Software and AgileSrc are client companies of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program at Central Florida Research Park in east Orange County.
