New VR Conference Announced
A series of VR-related conferences are coming up, with SIGGRAPH first up in Anaheim the week of July 24. Exclusive VR demos, talks and research projects will be shown. Tickets that include access to the “VR Village” start around $150-$250.
The next VRLA conference is on Saturday, August 6 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Tickets start at $40. There’s also a second day on August 5 geared toward professionals with tickets at $300 (Saturday is included).
The overwhelming response to the Virtual Reality Developers Conference held during GDC earlier this year has led to VRDC becoming its own event. It’ll be on November 2 and 3, right before the holidays when Daydream, Gear VR, Rift, PlayStation VR and Vive will all be available for purchase.
Facebook and Valve are offering dozens of VR games at steep discounts as part of dueling summer sales for software on the Steam and Oculus stores.
