November will see the debut of the first-ever standalone Virtual Reality Developers Conference, and conference organizers are working hard to line up great sessions, exhibitors and sponsors for the cutting-edge event.
The best way to understand the power of VR is to experience it for yourself, so today we’re excited to reveal some of the great VR demos that VRDC sponsors plan to make available for all VRDC attendees to check out as they’re making the most of their time at the conference.
Japanese VR pioneer Colopl Ni will have a booth at the show where visitors can play demos of their popular VR games Cyberpong and Slot Tub Party, as well as an as-yet unannounced VR game that’s expected to debut later this year.
Plus, sponsor MyDream Interactive is expected to bring playable versions of both its VR tower defense game Siege Hammer and its innovative LightVR room simulator, which allows anyone to build the room of their dreams.
The latter is especially intriguing because it’s being designed to allow users to view the real world around them (through a VR headset’s camera) and populate their virtual rooms with useful apps like Skype, web browsers and YouTube, potentially allowing you to craft your own ideal blended-reality experience.
And don’t miss Idealens, which will be providing free demos of its cutting-edge K2 and K2 Pro all-in-one virtual reality headsets!
So make sure to head over to the VRDC website now and register to attend the conference. There’s more, too: VRDC will feature a plethora of great VR/AR talks spanning games, entertainment, and beyond into subjects such as healthcare, journalism, travel, manufacturing, retail, live events, real estate, training, and so much more.
VRDC 2016 will take place November 2-3 at the Park Central Hotel in San Francisco. For more information on VRDC 2016, visit the show’s official website and subscribe to regular updates via Twitter and Facebook.
