I had my first VR experience at a virtual reality party at a hotel in Pensacola Beach in June 2016.
The party was called “VRHIVE” and included VR demos and a panel discussion called “Housing First,” featuring several prominent housing professionals from across the country.
We were in a small room with a large projector in the middle, and a headset on the head of the chair in front of us.
I was seated in front with my eyes shut, and the headset was pointing at my eyes.
The conversation went like this: One of the panelists, an artist and writer who was an expert on virtual reality, asked the panelist in the room about the difference between virtual and augmented reality.
The panelist responded, “A lot of people think that if you have a VR headset on your face, you’re not seeing it.”
The artist was incredulous, to say the least.
He then suggested that we look at the screen and see if it was “actually there,” or if we were hallucinating, because we were seeing the world.
I said, “Okay, so what do we do?”
The artist looked at the headset, and then said, with a bit of skepticism, “You can’t see the screen.
That’s a really bad idea.”
The panelists agreed that if someone had shown up and tried to look through the screen, it would probably be hard to tell if it actually was there.
A lot of VR developers seem to have come to this same conclusion.
In addition to VRHIVE, VRLA and VRBOT have hosted a variety of virtual reality events, and there have been some VR conference and event-type events as well.
In July, a group of about 10 VR enthusiasts from around the world gathered at the VRLA convention center in Orlando, Florida.
They had a VR demo with VRLA developer John Denton, a professor of computer science and physics at the University of Florida.
John was there to show off a virtual-reality game he had developed called “Virtual Reality: A New Game,” which was essentially a VR version of a board game.
I had played a version of “Virtual Reel” that I was part of a few months before.
VRLA’s “VR LIVE” VR demo, which I attended, was more of a demo of VRLA VR Labs’ virtual reality platform.
It had some familiar VR elements, like the Oculus Rift headset and HTC Vive controllers.
But I also saw VRLA-style VR live-action demos in which VRLA developers were working on real-world experiences.
I think that this is because VRLA was the only company in the world that was making VR games before VRLA Labs.
It’s also possible that VRLA is trying to create a VR culture that’s more inclusive.
In the past, I’ve heard VRLA has pushed the boundaries of VR experiences in its own events.
But the VR community has shown it has an appetite for more “interactive” VR experiences, and it’s clear that VR is expanding its horizons in the next few years.
I’ve already spoken with VR LA developer John about the future of VR.
The next big VR event is happening in October at the Samsung Oculus VR Studios in Hollywood, California, and VRLA will be there too.
But it seems unlikely that Samsung’s Oculus VR Studio is going to be a major hub for VR.
I spoke to John earlier this year about VRLA, and he said that there are many “new companies” and “new ideas” that he wants to work on.
I also asked him about his vision for VRLA.
I’m curious if he has any specific plans for VR LA.
He said, I don’t want to talk about that at the moment, but I do want to say that there is a lot of momentum behind VRLA now.
So, I’m going to give you a brief update on what’s happening with VR in the industry.
I’d like to go into the next month or two.
One of my big plans is to have a big VR conference that’s going to take place at Samsung VR Studios.
There will be a lot going on, so that we can have a lot more information to share.
We have a ton of projects happening there right now.
VRBOTS VRBO is one of those companies.
They’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign for a VRBO headset.
The campaign raised over $200,000 in a few days, and I’m excited to be working with the team at VRBO to make a headset that we are proud to show to our customers.
We’re very excited to share that with you.
We want to make VRBO as accessible as possible, so we have a few things coming out in the coming months.
One is a Kickstarter that will allow people to donate to the Oculus VR Lab.
VRBO has a Kickstarter where you can donate.
