This community driven event is focused on bringing together the brightest minds around San Francisco and the Bay area interested in virtual reality and related technologies to develop innovative hardware and software solutions, have fun, and help build out the future of immersive technologies.
We encourage entrants to bring their own hardware to work with. Thank you to our amazing sponsors, Microsoft, Web3D Consortium, EnfluxVR, Samsung, Nvidia, and AltspaceVR. Microsoft will be providing Hololenses, and Enflux will be providing EnfluxVR suits to develop full-body experiences.
