When companies like Wiredrive start getting into the VR space, it's proof that there's a market and that VR is happening
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 04, 2016
Wiredrive is thrilled to announce its hosting of the VRLA Kickoff Virtual Reality Mixer tonight, Thursday, August 4th, just one day before the VRLA conference begins. VRLA is the largest virtual reality and augmented reality expo in the world. The expo, open to both consumers and industry professionals, will feature cutting-edge demos of the most exciting projects in development for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Google Cardboard, Samsung GearVR and more!
It will be a fabulous night of drinks, appetizers, mingling and virtual reality talk at Wiredrive’s HQ in Silicon Beach. Guests are invited to check out the new HTC Vive in Wiredrive’s VR room, experience the LIVE 360 camera set-up with Samsung Gears to watch in real-time, and even play ping pong, all while indulging in delicious appetizers from Hey 19, wine from ONEHOPE, and beer from Anheuser-Busch. Foxtales will be providing their signature interactive kiosk where guests can create fun images and GIFs to share with friends on social media, and there will be custom limited-time Snapchat filters in place just for this event!
Wiredrive will support sharing and collaborating of VR and 360 content, and this mixer is kicking off the conversation about the opportunities that Wiredrive provides to this industry. “Wiredrive is excited to bring together the VR production community to meet and network together. This group of highly creative storytellers and sophisticated technologists representing the unique strengths of Silicon Beach. “ states Bill Sewell, Co-founder & Partner at Wiredrive, “VR is evolving rapidly and everyone is sharing in the learning process. It’s a very cool time to become involved.”
