Now that virtual reality has arrived, it's a good idea to start looking at how it can effectively be integrated with another life-changing technology: the internet.
The experts at WeVR are already doing just that, and at the inaugural standalone Virtual Reality Developers Conference this November WeVR VP (and VR pioneer) Tony Parisi will share insight into how you can start designing VR for the web.
In his talk "WebVR: Building for the Immersive Web" Parisi will run down the potential fruits of getting VR on the web, including the ability for consumers to experience VR without downloading and installing apps, and seamless transitions from one experience to another via hyperlinks.
He'll also explore how VR developers can also benefit, with the ability to deploy using open tools and existing cloud infrastructure.
Parisi further plans to deconstruct the immersive web and its underlying foundation, WebVR. WebVR comes online in late 2016, powered by a new generation of browsers including desktop Chrome and Firefox, and mobile browsers for Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream.
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 Sales hub to learn how to become a VRDC sponsor!
