While there hasn’t been a flashy launch of new technology or an iconic tech conference this week, there’s been a lot of news regarding future ventures in the AR/VR industry.
Welcome to our VR/AR Industry Roundup for the week of Oct. 16! Last week we saw many exciting announcements for hardware and software developments, as well as another hefty investment round for a certain mysterious startup. Let’s get right to it.
October 11 marked the beginning of the fourth annual Oculus Connect conference. Connect, if you’re unfamiliar with it, allows developers at Oculus to announce new products, updates, and much more. Oculus disclosed plenty of juicy information about what’s going on right now.
If you’ll recall, last Monday a few images leaked online of a new VR headset that appeared to be Samsung’s creation. This leak was in the wake of a mysterious “Windows Mixed Reality Event” that drew a lot of attention recently, and it took place earlier today.
