Experience the true reality of Virtual Reality
Interest in Virtual Reality (VR) is growing rapidly – don’t miss your chance to get ahead of the curve. Major players like Google, Facebook and Samsung are rolling out the critical infrastructure for VR content creation, distribution and consumption. Artists and brands have started to explore new ways to engage with their audiences and the available VR content is skyrocketing. Meanwhile, incubators and co-working spaces ike VR Base Amsterdam are opening their doors to help VR startups grow, and thereby strengthening the ecosystem.
All of this has made VR become more and more accessible to the general public. We believe that Virtual Reality (together with Augmented and Mixed Reality) will kick-start the 'internet of experiences'. Now is the time to start exploring this exciting new medium that will change the way we learn, work, live and play.
VR Bootcamp offers a crash course in understanding Virtual Reality as the ultimate interactive medium. Your hosts will take you deep down the VR rabbit hole and help you demystify this exciting new frontier. They have condensed years of research into a high-intensity VR experience. They will look upon its supporting ecosystem and infrastructure from a creative and business perspective. "I know Kung Fu?"
VR Bootcamp is highly immersive & experiential. Throughout the entire event, you will be experimenting with the latest hardware and content while our exports guide your explorations. Your hosts will also connect you to the local VR ecosystem and infrastructure that can support your next steps.
