We have NO IDEA why this story isn't exploding all over the Internet yet. HTC has confirmed that they are working on smartphone-based virtual reality technology. These guys are clearly qualified for the job, and we have every reason to believe this to be true. Very exciting stuff!
There is a lot of fun to be had at GDC / VRDC this year!
First, the Open Gaming Alliance is holding two days of sessions and events on March 14-15 (Monday, Tuesday). Virtual Reality is going to be a hot topic this year, and and there will be all kinds of discussions and networking opportunities on both days. Get yourselves RSVPed!
Next...GDC 2016 marks The Immersive Technology Alliance's second birthday since it was rebranded and expanded in 2014. Well, we've actually been around since 2009, but who's counting? Right after the VR panel (running 4PM-5PM Monday), we are going to have a reception featuring booze and cake! Two cakes, actually.
If this isn't enough for you, our good friends at SVVR and SFVR are hosting a huge VR Mixer on March 14, 2016.
It's a wonder how anyone will get any work done at VRDC / GDC.
