The Origins of VR Arcade:

I'm a young product designer of 5 years, currently running a funded startup at 500 Startups in SF. I'm simply into VR and learning about people in order to make amazing VR experiences. I got other VR/AR people together once I realized there wasn't a quality club of us out there somewhere to meet with each other to ACTUALLY PLAY VR GAMES. This is for us, the early-adopter VR/AR people.

Goals for each member:

• Become a better VR techie

• Meet people better than you at making / thinking around VR

• Enjoying yourself and your time

The future of VR Arcade:

• 6 meetups

• Presentations from smart VR product people

• Food, drinks, else

• Playing VR games

Thanks for reading/scanning this, if you think you can play and talk VR for two hours, hang with smart VR people, and teach others new skills around VR, then welcome!
