The inaugural standalone edition of the Virtual Reality Developers Conference is kicking off in November, so today we'd like to highlight a few more of the cutting-edge tech companies who have already signed on to sponsor the show.
Notably, tech giants Intel and Google are sponsoring the conference, which seeks to explore and understand the fields of virtual- and augmented-reality experience design.
Google has a significant stake in those fields via Google VR, a broad initiative to build VR for everyone. Google aims to make it easy to experience virtual reality with Daydream, a platform for high quality mobile VR, or Google Cardboard, a fun and simple headset that works with your iPhone or Android phone.
Plus, VRDC sponsor Morph 3D is on a mission to be the gold standard of advanced avatar engine and character management system for virtual, augmented and mixed realities. Morph 3D aims to provide a character management engine for the unified creation, command and control of a persistent virtual identity across multiple realities -- and Morph 3D will demo its exciting vision at VRDC.
And that's not all -- more sponsors are expected to get involved with VRDC, and some of them will be sponsoring their own expert talks on the VRDC Partners Track, which aims to provide sessions that enable companies to communicate the value of their tool or service, then educate and empower developers to put it to great use.
So head over to the VRDC website now and register to attend the conference, which will feature a plethora of great VR/AR talks spanning games, entertainment, and beyond into subjects such as healthcare, journalism, travel, manufacturing, retail, live events, real estate, training, and so much more.
And if you have a great tool, service, product, or platform that enables developers to create innovative VR/AR experiences, you can contact [email protected] or visit UBM's VRDC Sponsorships hub to learn how to become a VRDC sponsor!
VRDC 2016 will take place November 2-3 at the Park Central Hotel in San Francisco. For more information on VRDC 2016, visit the show's official website and subscribe to regular updates via Twitter and Facebook.
