VR/AR Events Galore

In all the excitement surrounding VR and AR, there are a few upcoming events we'd like to bring to the attention of VR/AR Beat readers, some of which are this week. 

In chronological order, the first of these takes place Tuesday and Wednesday: Greenlight VR's web summit will kick off with a social event, followed by a full day of online sessions. The highlights will include a VR Analytics Showcase featuring CrowdOptic, Futuremark and others.

The second event is Thursday: our own San Francisco chapter launch. It will take place at Samsung's Mountain View campus and include an all star cast of speakers including Google, Samsung and Shel Israel.

And for all you New Yorkers we'll be having the corresponding NYC chapter launch next Tuesday. Hope to see you at all three events.
