Variety, along with Dell provider of computers that drive VR
experiences aims to support VR innovation and entrepreneurship and shine
a spotlight on the 10 VR and AR pros who are not just pushing the
boundaries of gaming and storytelling but are also creating new software
tools to change the way people work and live.
‘Virtual Reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are at the center of
the tech-entertainment convergence, attracting billions in venture
capital and producing near-hysterical levels of expectation. In spite of
the new excitement and attention, the people innovating in these fields
remain largely unknown to those in traditional showbiz circles and the
public at large.
With this in mind, we shine the Variety spotlight on 10 VR Innovators to Watch.’ Find out more.
