Recording: Reality Check: Are VR and AR Ready for Prime Time?, Mar 13, 2023

For decades, VR and AR were the stuff of science fiction, and either impractical or unaffordable. Today, these technologies have “crossed the chasm” and—thanks to tech giants like Meta, Apple, and others—are predestined to jump from niche experiences to go-to consumer platforms for the Metaverse. By 2025, more VR/AR headsets are expected to ship than gaming consoles.

Join VR/AR leaders to discuss how extended reality will revolutionize consumer experiences. Nanea Reeves is CEO and Co-Founder of TRIPP, the leading provider for meditation and wellness in VR; Jeri Ellsworth is CEO and Co-Founder of Tilt Five, the world’s first AR gaming system; Moritz Baier-Lentz is Partner and Head of Gaming at Lightspeed Venture Partners; and Scott Rupp is Founding General Partner at BITKRAFT Ventures.
