<p><strong><img alt="photo_occulus_small" class="aligncenter size-full" src="https://blogmanagement.momenteo.com/Content/blog-img/photo_occulus_small-1-768x403.png" /></strong></p> <h2><strong>The future of accounting is now.</strong></h2> <p>With the tax reports period going strong, we thought the timing was perfect to change the game, again. We&rsquo;re very excited to announce that Momenteo is now available for Oculus Rift. The team has been working around the clock for the past 6 months to be ready for the public release of the new virtual reality device. And there won&#39;t be any disappointment. We&#39;re bringing the very best of&nbsp;VR by including the most advanced technologies, such as NVIDIA MultiRes shading technique and Instanced Stereo Rendering. Dominic Goulet, CEO of Momenteo, is very excited to lift the curtain on this stealthy project:</p> <blockquote>Cloud-based accounting died Q1 2016, it just felt logical to port our whole infrastructure to a state-of-the-art technology.&nbsp;</blockquote> <p>Featuring full-fledged, high-res 3d models of accountants and offices, <em>Momenteo for Oculus</em> is an immersive experience that you could very well mistake for reality. Senior 3D modelers were hired to get every single details right, from the brown socks to the red Porsches. It is safe to say that we turned a boring and stressful task into a life-changing encounter with technology.</p> <blockquote>Sound design used to be the poor child of accounting softwares. Not anymore.</blockquote> <p>With binaural audio and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Head-related_transfer_function">head-related transfer function</a>, you&rsquo;ll be able to enjoy your accountant&rsquo;s office like never before. From high-bpm elevator music to crystal-clear receptionist voice, Momenteo for VR is an experience you&rsquo;re not about to forget.</p> <h2><strong>By popular demand, we even added 4 mini-games! </strong></h2> <ul> <li>Late-paying clients harassment.</li> <li>Receipts in shoebox Majhong</li> <li>Endless tax report shredding game (Including in-app purchases)</li> <li>A race against the clock to avoid late penalties</li> </ul> <h2><strong>What else?</strong></h2> <ul> <li>Politically correct gender picking for your virtual accountant</li> <li>Manual ordering of receipts in a real world office simulation</li> <li>Casual shirt display mode</li> </ul> <h2>Hardware specs</h2> <p>Of course, Momenteo is now very hardware intensive and requires a high-end machine. We optimized the accountant AI at the core of our homemade engine, but it still is very heavy on the GPU. We recommend these minimum specs:</p> <ul> <li>CPU : Intel Core I7-5960X 3.50GHZ or equivalent</li> <li>RAM: 32GB DDR3-2400 or equivalent</li> <li>Video card : NVIDIA Titan X 12GB in 2-way SLI or equivalent</li> </ul> <blockquote>4000$ is still very cheap to enjoy such an high-end accounting experience... just pass it as an expense.</blockquote> <p>Disruption has always been at the core of our strategy, and we feel like this is a major step for freelance accounting.&nbsp;Of course we&#39;ll still offer legacy support for our web and mobile users, some people will always be old-fashioned. <strong>Available for 20$/month on the Oculus Store.</strong> <em>Oculus Rift and the Oculus Rift logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of Oculus VR, LLC, used under license agreement.</em></p>

I like building cool products and marketing them.
