Augmented/Virtual Reality

"Virtual and augmented realities are now embodied in a multitude of applications, practices, and industries. It has never been more apparent that immersive realities are a fixture of our day-to-day lives than at SIGGRAPH 2016. Courses feature a variety of topics on VR, AR, and virtual environments; leading experts speak in Talks, Experience Presentations, Birds of Feather presentations, and Production Sessions; demos are on stage during Real-Time Live!; and hands on interactive experiences present alternative realities in VR Village, Emerging Technologies, and the Studio."
