SDC 2014: ‘Interacting with VR Today and Tomorrow’ Liveblog

It’s the final day of the 2014 Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) in San Francisco, California. However, rather than winding down on virtual reality (VR) content there are a number of new sessions set to take place today, each of which will be liveblogged by VRFocus. The first is another panel named ‘Interacting with VR Today and Tomorrow’. Panelists include Samsung Research America’s Andrew Dickerson, Virtuix’s Jan Goetgeluk, Leap Motion co-founder David Holz, AlterspaceVR CEO Eric Romo and Sixense CEO Amir Rubin. The session will be moderated by Road to VR’s Ben Lang.

“Since the Facebook acquisition of Oculus, VR has been rapidly advancing into the everyday consumer’s world,” the session’s official description reads. “A panel of long-time VR interaction experts that have predicted this movement will share their thoughts on where VR is today, and where it will be in the next few years. They will also discuss mapping walking in the real world to your virtual character, picking up objects in VR, the sense of presence those generate, and the pros and cons of mobile vs. desktop VR.”

Make sure to check back with VRFocus throughout the day for more from SDC 2014.
