This past weekend, we turned up for the VRLA Summer Expo. As more and more people get interested, and involved, in VR, what used to be a tiny meetup has grown beyond any of its founders wildest imaginations, doubling in attendance every quarter. As they grow, so do their venues. This time, they had to move it to the Los Angeles Convention Center to accomodate a sold-out crowd of 2,000+.
We made our rounds, saw a lot of familiar faces and a few new ones. Here’s a condensed version of how it went down.
We packed it in.

3D Google Jump camera was very compelling. 16 GoPro array. Cylindrical video where nadir/zenith is blended. #VRLA pic.twitter.com/6MBqLZDRsX — Sarah Hill (@SarahMidMO) August 30, 2015
The @TwoBitCircus clown noses were all the rage at @vrlosangeles. We ran out of them fast! @VRScout pic.twitter.com/4hCfWGxoF4

We lit a torch.

We were the Knights who said Nimbus.

We got a rub down.
It’s not a #VR experience but sometimes a Scout needs a massage after many headset head turns at #VRLA pic.twitter.com/fkURS91HEj — VRScout (@VRScout) August 30, 2015
And then we went home.
That’s a wrap on #vrla! Thanks for coming out! 👌🏼 pic.twitter.com/IcIV5bCha8
