On September 19th and 20th, 2014 Oculus VR held its first ever developer conference where we had the opportunity to talk to Oculus team members, connect with other developers from around the world and test upcoming technology such as the Samsung Gear VR mobile headset and the impressive Oculus Rift prototype Crescent Bay.
Oculus Connect is a developer conference that brings together engineers, designers, and creatives from around the world to share and collaborate in the interest of creating the best virtual reality experiences possible.
It was 2 days packed with workshops, talks, demonstrations and lots of networking.
Fernando M. Tarnogol, founder of PsyTech LLC was there and had the opportunity to talk to like minded individuals who share his passion for Psychology and Technology, discuss Perceptual Psychology with Michael Abrash (Oculus Chief Scientist and one of the most renonowned personalities in the software development industry) and even talk with Palmer Luckey, the creator of the Oculus Rift.
We will bring all of the knowledge acquired during Oculus Connect to PHOBOS and starting next year, we will start organizing workshops, talks and providing consulting services to those interested in Virtual Reality development.
Through Oculus Connect, we learned where we should be focusing our efforts in the next few months. This conference also laid a clear path for the future of all of the Virtual Reality industry in the coming years and we look forward to sharing that knowledge.
