Very happy with how this turned out! Thanks Space Channel, InnerSpace, and MTV! Sorry for the slow news - rushing, rushing, rushing for Immersed Europe which is going to be AMAZING! Be sure to check out the updated speakers list and exhibitors. More exhibits expected to be added soon too.

Just in case you thought we didn't have enough on our plate, Immersed 2015 is in Toronto on October 4-6. Speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors are welcome. This year's event is going to be three days instead of two, so let's make it special.
A few weeks ago, The Immersive Technology Alliance was interviewed by Ajay Fry from InnerSpace. This is the Space Channel's flagship program with over six million subscribers and a million television viewers each week. The segment airs Monday night at 6PM EST (3PM PST). In other words, TODAY!
We are super stoked because the industry got together on this so we could showcase all kinds of virtual reality solutions on national television. The HTC Vive, Starbreeze Studios' StarVR, Oculus' Crescent Bay, an IM360 camera rig, the latest E-Magin HMD prototype, and Samsung's Gear VR were all featured. An added bonus is we were able to get this all shot in AMD's Markham offices where much of their graphics technology magic happens.
Today it's all about the haptics. Check out our interview with the University of Tokyo. Their SIGGRAPH 2015 demo showcased person to person haptics. In other words, if you remotely touch someone's hand, they can actually feel it thanks to positional sound waves. Very cool!
