So it’s nearly up on us, the number one event for innovators in augmented and virtual reality – The Vision VR/AR Summit. If you work in this sector or simply a massive fan of virtual reality then this is the show to attend. There is less than a fortnight before all the top developers, designers and advocates in this area come together in Hollywood, California to celebrate all things VR. Expect to see all walks of life visit the summit from the artists who build the graphics through to concept creators, directors and producers.
As you expect there will be some fantastic speakers including the keynote speaker including Alex McDowell, creative director of 5D who will be talking about the creation of stunning virtual realities. There will also be talks from the likes of Jeff Noris (Nasa), Holden Link (Turbo Button) and Robyn Gray (Otherworld Interactive). Expect to see some beaming smiles when during the awards ceremony. The Vision summit has just revealed the VR/AR award finalists and there are some very interesting outfits in-line to land an award including ‘Fantastic Contraption’ by Northway Games & Radial Games for the Vision Inspire Award and ‘Apollo 11 VR’ by Immersive VR Education for Best film.
Sadly it’s a bit far for the Reality Sandwich to travel to but if you are interested in going to the summit tickets are still available. Check out the Vision Summit site for more info.
