Silicon Valley Virtual Reality, a community of developers, content creators, fans, and industry professionals dedicated to building the emerging VR field, held its second annual conference/expo a few days ago at the San Jose Convention Center. All the heavy-hitters in the VR industry were in attendance, including the founder of Oculus VR, Palmer Luckey; Google’s VP of Product Management, Clay Bavor; Samsung’s VP of Strategy and Creative Content, Matt Apfel; and co-founder of NextVR, David Cole, among others. Samsung’s Matt Apfel gave the keynote address and it was clear that Samsung played a major role in the production of this event.
Throughout the expo floor, which SVVR boasts as the largest expo floor in the VR industry, numerous placards announcing Samsung’s sponsorship of the event were boldly on display.
Noitom was represented at the event, and their CTO, Dr. Tristan Ruoli Dai, was one of the speakers during the conference/expo. Accompanying Noitom on the second day of the expo was a team from uSens, Inc., including uSens CTO, Dr. Yue Fei, and their Public Relations Specialist, Lynn Sun. Although uSens did not have a booth at the expo this year, they assure us that their upcoming product, Impression Pi, will be on display and entered in the competition at SIGGRAPH this August.
Overall, SVVR was an rousing success. We witnessed plenty of new advances within the field of virtual reality. With all the teams and companies vying to make the next best consumer product in virtual reality, be it in content or hardware, we are very excited about what is to come. The sky’s the limit.
