Many technology prognosticators are predicting 2016 will be a year where virtual reality goes mainstream.

But just exactly what kind of impact will VR have? What’s the user experience actually like? Will I pee my pants because I’ll be so convinced it’s real?


Welp… come see for yourself.

This Saturday at the LA Convention Center come glimpse the future and check out the latest in virtual reality and immersive technology from the leading companies in the industry at VRLA 2016 Winter Expo, the world’s largest Virtual Reality exhibition.

On hand will be featured demos from the likes of Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard, and Samsung GearVR, plus a lineup of presentations and industry panel discussions that include topics such as human digitization and facial capture, interactive motion controllers, mobile VR, business opportunities in VR, and the future of what virtual reality has to offer.
