We were excited to attend the VRAR Global Summit last week - and what an event it was! With VR and AR developers, creators, storytellers and high-tech enthusiasts all in attendance, it proved to be an ebullient and highly-engaging two days of XR innovation.
On Day 2, our CSO and Co-Founder, Lee Brighton took to the stage on a panel discussing the future of VR and Education. Amongst the many themes, one of the key discussion topics explored the importance of having clear learning outcomes and goals when employing VR in learning.
Jordan Brighton, CEO and Founder, also joined the discussions in the afternoon to explore the topic, ‘VR/AR Gaming - Where to Next?’ It was great to see a ⅔ female panel, especially on the subject of ‘Gaming in VR.’ Each developer discussed the challenges of game development and what they see as VR’s biggest adoption challenges. There was a lot of emphasis on funding and creating experiences that will appeal to traditional gamers as well as VR gamers.
With such an incredible eco-system here in Vancouver, we’re delighted to have been a part of this year’s event and we're excited about the future of the industry!
