On December 3rd, 2015 we held the first OffPlanet VR meetup at NextSpace in Downtown Berkeley. Inspired by meetups SFVR and SVVR (Silicon Valley Virtual Reality), we wanted to bring together local pioneers in the industry and see what creators were making with platforms like Oculus Rift before its launch to consumers.
A year later, OffPlanet VR is Berkeley’s ticket to the future of computing and a chance to talk with the people designing and testing it. This Saturday Dec 3rd from 4pm to 8pm we’re celebrating with our fourth gathering of VR pioneers to see what we’ve learned so far and what could lie ahead for the industry as it attempts to capture mass market appeal.
If you’re curious about virtual reality, 360 video, and want to find out how to get into this radical new territory, don’t miss this chance to experience some of the best VR tech on the planet, and have some cake with us. We look forward to seeing you.
