Speaking about VR at Facebook Conference

Today, I was part of the Virtual Reality Panel at the Emerce Facebook Conference, part of the Amsterdam eWeek 2015.

VR & Facebook?  Yes, the social network giant acquired Oculus – makers of the Oculus Rift and co-developers of the Gear VR headsets – for $2 Billion in 2014. In fact, Facebook just added 360° video support on it’s network.

My fellow members of the Panel where VR-experts from Jaunt – the cinematic VR company that raised $65 Million from Disney last month – Dutch TV network VPRO and Real Estate website Funda. The Panel was hosted by John from 3sixtyfive (Thanks for having me!)

This is Mark Zuckerberg’s take on VR:

I actually put that quote on the wall of our animation studio, for obvious motivational reasons.

It was a pleasure to meet these VR experts and chat with them about their different views of this emerging technology.
