VR is now a multi-billion dollar industry, with some of the best minds on earth working on it.
We organised this meetup to discuss the current state of tech, where it's going, and what we can do with it. We typically have speakers and plenty of demos from Northern England's VR creators and visitors from across the UK.
Bring demos and tech if you have them! Whether it's Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Hololens, Cardboard or any other tech old or new, let's get like-minded people together.
