Note from Neil Schneider:
This is a big week at the University of Ontario Insitute of Technology (UOIT). This Friday (June 14, 2013), UOIT is hosting the Innovation 2013 conference. The purpose of the event is to discuss the current and future trends of technology as it relates to business and the way we live our lives. I’m personally excited about this because during my presentation, I will be highlighting some of the new immersive technology facilities we recently added to the university and what it means for the Ontario region. More than that, we are planning to showcase some of the latest student work that takes advantage of immersive technologies including the Oculus Rift.

I’m just one of many speakers and there will be follow-up workshops attendees can choose from.  At just $55 a person (plus tax), registration also includes a buffet lunch, so you can’t go wrong with that!  Register with enough notice because a proper head count is needed so there is enough food.

I’m also going be interviewed on Daytime Durham on Rogers TV tomorrow morning as a lead-up to the event. Wish me luck! ;=)

    Hi Guys!

    I haven’t seen it yet, but I think you are all going to have a good laugh pointing out my foibles on live community access television. I got all my points across in a positive way, but I think I managed to make Oculus’ worst nightmares come true in the span of thirty seconds. :lol:

    Don’t worry! The Rift’s honor was restored during the show’s credits, and no animals were harmed while broadcasting Daytime Durham.

    Regards,
    Neil

    Cool! Is there any way to watch it through the net?

    Not easily. I’ll see what I can do.
