Portland Virtual Reality Meetup - April 2015

Details

This is our monthly VR meetup time. Come try out some demos and talk about some news.

I'll be returning from the IEEE VR and 3DUI conferences in France, and can talk about highlights from these two academic VR conferences.

We've had a team of VR meetup members working on the Oculus mobile game jam (https://www.oculus.com/blog/oculus-mobile-vr-jam-2015/), and we can report back our initial progress for developing for the Gear VR.

E-mail me at [masked] if you'd like to speak or present on anything.

Demo Logistics

If you have an Oculus Rift or have any other interesting VR hardware or software to share, please consider bringing it along for the demo and show and tell portion of the event.

Add a comment below if you plan on bringing either an entire VR rig to show a demo of your own (or a demo you really love). Also leave a comment if you have a gaming laptop that you're willing to bring for someone with a Rift without a portable & fast enough computer.
