By golly, there are some promising-sounding events coming up for all those interested in VR, 360 video, immersive media, and whatever else we call the things blowing our minds these days. Attend the one that sounds most appealing to you, or attend all three and feel superior to the rest of us. Rub it in, why don’t you.
Tonight at CNDY Factory, 7-11, is the Mettle VR Video Workshop. If you want to learn more about the software responsible for 360 video, this is the event to attend. There will also be pizza (good, gourmet pies provided by Woodland Pizza), 360 video demos, and a chance to hang out and meet other like-minded VR pioneers. Go here for tickets. Here’s a little taste of what you can expect at CNDY Factory tonight:
Sixr just announced that they’re partnering with Seattle Fashion Week. You can mingle with both the Sixr team and models (I realize it might be hard to tell the difference). The fashion commences this Thursday at 6:00 at Pacific Place. Fancy. More info here.
Are you into VR for the games? You’ve got a lot of company. On Friday, 7:00-midnight, the first VR Gamers Meetup gets underway at Indies Workshop. I’m told there will be two Vives to use, big screens for spectators, and loads of game-oriented VR experiences.
