WebVR - democracy in Virtual Reality

Virtual reality has already become a major trend in interactive marketing campaigns (see: O2 Wear The Rose, Experience 5GUM, Nissan Juke: Chase The Thrill). Technology used to deliver these is mostly not portable and cross­platform enough making the installations available for minorities only. As VR devices such as Oculus Rift or Samsung Gear VR are becoming more easily accessible every month, this tendency is no longer acceptable. Democracy must stand and there is but one solution to create impact - ­web! The lecture is to present how various JavaScript APIs (WebGL, WebAudio, WebRTC, Sensor API) can be combined in order to create immersive experiences and bring the mobile-­first web into a completely new dimension. It is also to show how MozVR and VR­-enabled Chrome builds are making WebVR a reality. It’s about making VR devices not only a more complex user interface but also a real tool to unleash completely new VR-­enabled content. Because at the end of the day, it’s you People who really matter. The presentation will include live "Vincent Morisset's WAY TO GO" experience available to lucky volunteers.
