Every month, London, UK-based The Realities Centre holds a conference or game jam dedicated to some part of the virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) or mixed reality (MR) industries. While previous events have focused on healthcare or education, for April, The Realities Centre will be dedicating its events to gaming.
Only a few details have been released so far, stating that a conference will be held on Thursday, 27th April featuring some of the biggest VR studios and industry insiders. Then on the weekend of 29th – 30th April, there will be a 24 hour game jam. Tickets for the conference and game jam sign-ups will be announced shortly.
In March, The Realities Centre ran a conference highlighting the combination of AI + VR, supported by PwC, Reincubate and The Trampery with IBM Waston, Oculus, Improbable, HP, HTC and more. Rob Whitehead, co-founder and CTO of Improbable, spoke about ‘A high level introduction of the AI and VR industry’, while Phil Westcott, European ecosystem leader at IBM Watson held a talk on ‘IBM Watson in IoT & VR’.
The conference was then followed by a weekend hackathon with teams working together to build a VR project in 24h. The winners were Carlous, Jonathan, Cynthia and Ankur from team PSYCH, creating an anxiety busting app.
