--- Virtual Reality - The Experience --- 

This is the final event of the VR Talk Series on How to Build a Virtual World.  We’re wrapping it up with a bang; cash prizes and hardware. We’ll be keeping the presentation short and focus on “The Experience”. Instead of lots of speaking, we’re having a contest and VR experiences for you to try out.

Contest exhibitors will be announced as they are chosen. Watch this space, VanCG Meetup and VanVR Meetup pages for updates.


The spirit of the contest is to show off never-before-seen local VR tech and experiences that can be shared globally. We’re encouraging students, indie, and even companies to show something new.

First prize gets a Structure Sensor and $100 cash, second prize gets $150 cash, and third gets $100 cash.

Experiences could consist of anything; an amazing environment, a fascinating puzzle, fireworks, or surreal art. Whatever you do have fun! Try to produce an experience that takes advantage of the robustness of today’s VR engines.
