Mixed Reality Easter Egg Hunt to Feature at VRLA
Visitors to VRLA will be able to use the HoloLens to search for virtual eggs.
The VRLA Conference and Expo in Los Angeles will this year have a new feature as part of its virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) demos – a Mixed Reality Easter Egg hunt.
Organised by AR/VR development agency and content creators AfterNow and FLARB in cooperation with Microsoft HoloLens, visitors to the VRLA will be able to look through a HoloLens headset and see the virtual Easter eggs which will be hidden throughout an indoor park space. The egg hunt is just one of hundreds of AR and VR demos that will feature through the VRLA weekend.
VRLA is set to feature a full schedule of panels, talks and discussions. The creative team from Epic Games who worked on Robo Recall will be offering details of the development process behind the successful videogame. Rick & Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and Unity CEO John Riccitiello will be offering keynote speeches on the Saturday and Friday respectively.
A slate of exhibitors from industry names like Samsung, Oculus, nVidia, HTC and Google will be in the exhibition hall, alongside a dedicated ‘Indie Zone’ where smaller development teams can show off their products. In addition a ‘Girls Make VR’ workshop is being planned, where young women will be able to get to grips with the Unity 3D engine and have the opportunity to produce their own VR applications.
Tickets for VRLA are still available with the business-focused 2-Day Pro Pass at $299 USD and a 1-Day Pass for Saturday priced at $40. The event will take place on 14th-15th April at the Los Angeles Convention Centre.
VRFocus will continue to bring you the latest updates on VRLA and other industry events.
