As Josh Carpenter tweeted soon after joining Google:
“VR is for everyone, & WebVR is going to help make it happen.”
Well renowned as lead browser VR guru at Mozilla where he worked on WebVR and A-Frame - each designed to expose the power of immersive VR to Web developers spread across the globe - Josh will be on deck to talk WebVR vision, Google, Daydream, etc. from one of the most authoritative perspectives possible about the pathway ahead.
The world's most powerful Android phone company Samsung, whose core VR team includes Laszlo Gombos, Paul Kim, and Michael Blix, has just released their new web VR Browser: Samsung Internet for GearVR 1.0
Added functionality includes improved VR video support and mobile browser integration that lets you easily transition from a mobile experience into an immersive GearVR experience. Join us by the Bay and check this out!
