VRLO 5.0: London VR Meetup Highlights


VRLO, the UK’s biggest VR meetup returned last Thursday for it’s fifth incarnation. As usual it was bigger and better than the last and was totally sold out.

VRLO has been running for over a year and has been a success since the beginning. This VRLO had support from BBC, Google, HTC and Epic Games and sponsorship from AMD, Unreal, Autodesk and more.

Highlights of this years event included BBC R&D’s latest VR experience called Space which allows users to experience what it’s like be an astronaut outside the the international space station. The experience was produced in collaboration with UK VR studio Rewind. Also on show was the recently released Bjork VR experience, a number of VR docs from VR city, The Walk from Sony Pictures and lots of independent studios.

Speakers included; The BBC who spoke about their latest release of VR experiments, Google highlighted their new VR cloud rendering platform, HTC and Unreal spoke about their recent announcements, collaborations and how the London VR community are leading the way in VR development.

VRLO will return later in the year. The event is hosted and organized by Rewind.
