Upcoming Virtual Reality Events

This month we are working in partnership with The Old Market on their series of #TOMTECH events, which focuses on cutting edge uses of virtual reality technology.

We have four fantastic opportunities for you to explore and learn more about virtual reality, whether you are a seasoned expert in all things VR or are just interested to discover more.

Story Hack 2016 

What can new technology bring to the world of live entertainment? Here’s your chance to find out…

A one-day conference bringing together creative technologists, theatre makers and manufacturers to address the challenges and opportunities faced working in emerging technologies.

The programme contains talks, tech demos and enriching conversations around:

·      Where does the 'shared experience’ of the future take place?

·      Immersive tech is redefining the live experience.

·      What if actually ‘being there’ is no longer relevant?

·     Share best practice; network with like-minded storytellers from across the creative industries; forge new collaborations.

Oculus Touch Hackathon

Are you a coder, an artist, a designer or a bit of all three?

Sign up our Oculus Touch Hack for the opportunity to get your hands on the latest motion-tracked input controllers from Oculus, the Oculus Touch before launch later this year. Get early access to the devices to understand their capabilities and learn how to develop with them, whilst having fun.
For just over 24hrs you will work in teams of 3-4 together to create fun mini-games that make use of the capacitive, haptic motion-tracked controllers before a judging panel.

The winning team will walk away with an Oculus Rift VR headset.
