Gear up Thursday December 3rd, 6-9pm for Off Planet VR,
an evening exploring the Metaverse.

With VR and Augmented Reality projected to hit $150 billion in revenue by 2020, emerging Bay Area companies are at the forefront of building the Metaverse: a new form of presence.

On Thursday Dec 3rd, from 6-9pm Quirkeley invites you to connect with scores of Bay Area VR pioneers, developers and UC Berkeley students for a night of virtual fun and games in the heart of Downtown Berkeley at NextSpace, 2081 Center Street. Discover your next adventure. #OffPlanet

OffPlanet_logo_circleOff Planet VR is a free 3-hour exploration of virtual reality and 360 experiences from the architects, developers and dreamers of this radical new territory. Off Planet is produced by Quirkeley’s Executive Producer, Siciliana Trevino and sponsored by the Berkeley Startup Cluster.

Trevino, who’ll be showing her first VR project for Oculus Rift, Berkeley in 360, says, “It’s going to be breathtaking. Off Planet VR is a first-of-its-kind event in Downtown Berkeley where future-minded developers, creatives and VR pioneers can experience some of the most compelling new platforms and projects happening in VR today. Berkeley is an ideal launchpad to explore the out-of-this-world potential of VR.”

To that end special guests include SpaceVR CEO, Ryan Holmes, fresh from a successful Kickstarter campaign to bring a VR camera to the International Space Station to allow anyone to experience space on any mobile, desktop or VR device. Check out their mission to change the world on YouTube:
