It is already 2 months since we attended the very first Czech VR Fest (part 1)
There we met all of the high-profile guests and leading brands from the VR/AR industry.
These are the speakers we liked the most:
Jan Horsky – Jan is VR pioneer, developer, journalist, blogger and gamer. He spoke about challenges of designing hardware and optics for VR. His talk went into great technical detail and was the most informative when it comes to hard facts.
Vojta Rocek – As a co-founder of business intelligence startup Stories, Jan introduced his vision about using VR for working with complex data structures. He also put great emphasis on the need of making VR more accessible to non-technical Executives, since these are the ones making decisions. We are planning to cooperate with Stories on their VR mission.
Vit Jedlicka – president of Liberland officially introduced Virtual Liberland .
Amir Ebrahimi – Principal Software Engineer in Unity, he takes care of VR development. Unity is great platform and we were amazed how quickly they are improving their VR support.
Jaroslav Stehlik – Using drones and photogrammetry, he is putting real castle ruins and other historical places in VR. We tried his VR game from Okoř Castle, finding hidden mysteries. His project has a name Bohemia VR.
We also got a chance to present our own ideas during a short speech, we will introduce in part 3.
Next year there will be even more progress in VR space and we at octopus engine will be significant contributors.
