EARTH DAY AT GOLDEN GATE PARK - 2017
The inaugural Virtual Reality in the Park: Earth Day @ Golden Gate Park (April 22, 2017 at the SF County Fair Building) was a great success.
Attendees had the opportunity to try out several experiences including painting in 3 dimensions (Google Tilt Brush), composing music in new ways (Lyra VR), exploring ocean habitats (theBlu), fighting space pirates, floating through the work of an Oscar-Winning designer (Kevin Mack's Blortasia), meeting a rocket scientist (SpaceVR's Blaze Sanders) and more.
Virtual reality systems included Facebook/Oculus, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard and Microsoft Hololens.
