There are a few events we go to each year, and SIGGRAPH is one of them. In addition to a rich program featuring virtual reality and augmented reality, they are holding a new VR Village this year. The VR Village hosts a wide range of experimental ideas and projects with virtual reality, and this year's edition features everything from a collaborative VR environment put together by Eon Reality to MechVR, an experimental simulator where you ride a giant biped robot - lots of fun!
One of the flagship exhibits is the VR Storylab which blends narrative-driven, 360-degree VR content in a physical lab environment. It provides an immersive adventure by showcasing a wide range of art, entertainment, academic, scientific, and experiential VR.
Then there is all the educational immersive content and discussions! It's going to be an amazing show - looking forward to seeing everyone there!
This turned out to be a lot of fun! The VRLA Summer Expo is happening August 5-6, 2016 at the LA Convention Centre, and we thought it would be a great idea to welcome Cosmo Scharf to the basement - such as it is. Anyways, the interview turned out great!
