Rank #2: 079 - VRScout Report: The Social + VR Mixer - Discover the Best in Virtual Reality

Podcast cover
Read more
This week's episode is a live panel discussion from VRScout's monthly mixer all about Social + VR, feat. guests Reggie Watts (VR/AR enthusiast & creator, currently on the Late Late Show with James Corden), Abbey Tate (Technicolor Experience Center), Aaron Lemke (TheWaveVR), Julie Young (SH//FT Spotlight), Bruce Vaughn (Dreamscape Immersive), and moderated by Malia Probst (VRScout, the WXR Venture Fund). We chat about the current (mis?)conception that "VR is isolating and AR is social,” how the panelists are integrating social aspects into their respective immersive concentrations, preventing VR chat rooms from becoming virtual trolling/griefing platforms, and what it's like to be the first comedian to do standup in VR.   Hosted by Malia Probst http://www.VRScout.com/podcast
