It just gets cooler and cooler! We were surprised to learn that AMD's Chief Gaming Scientist Richard Huddy will be joining our already amazing panel at the 2015 Annual Meeting for The ITA. Panel moderator Jon Peddie of Jon Peddie Research has his work cut out for him! The panel features representation from AMD, Siliconarts, ImmersiON-VRelia, VRvana, NextVR, and Crytek. Other speakers include Samsung Gear VR and The Khronos Group. Register in advance to ensure your spot.
If you tried to register for the upcoming ITA Annual Meeting and got wait-listed on Eventbrite, GOOD NEWS! We were able to rebalance the tickets and there is a bit more room capacity than originally anticipated. Get registered while you still can. You don't have to be an ITA member to access the public portion.
While GDC is all the rage, Torontonians have a special treat. Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH is going to be hosting the SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival for everyone who missed it in Vancouver. Roy Anthony will be hosting.
Now how cool is that? Pretty darned cool! Crossing our fingers that we get to see this thing...whatever it is. There is an expectation that it's an HMD, but who knows what cool things Valve keeps locked away in their garage.
In the meantime, we did notice something striking at GDC. Sony Morpheus has talks, Oculus VR has talks, obviously Valve has talks...where is Samsung?
