Virtual Reality: The Make It or Break It Years

Mar 16, 2017 | 12:30pm – 1:30pm CT


This panel will discuss the fledgling VR industry's next four years. Will the Trump Administration help or hinder its progress? Will VR be the technology we use to escape a dystopian future, or can it be used to build a new better world? Can VR go mainstream in the current climate of strained trade relationships and cyber espionage, or will it go back into the bin for another twenty years? How do we learn from recent failings of online communities and address privacy, security, bullying, and harassment from the jump? So serious!
