PRESENTATION: Braycen Jackwitz (Pillow Head Games) – What Exactly is Microsoft’s ‘Mixed Reality’
Windows is stepping into the VR game with the launch of their Mixed Reality platform and headsets.
Along with this are two new concepts being introduced to the VR community, VR at the operating system level and inside out tracking.
Braycen from Pillow Head Games will be giving a crash course in everything Windows Mixed Reality. From the hardware capabilities and limitations introduced in inside tracking, to development in Unity and Unreal, we will be talking about everything you need to know about this new big player in VR.
We’ll also be touching on SteamVR support on Windows MR, how it works and how it plays, and what to keep in mind when supporting Windows MR in your own SteamVR game.
DEMOS: We will have a number of VR/AR headsets available for demonstrations on the night. If you have any recommendations on specific experiences or would like to demo something you have been working on we would be happy to accommodate you.
