Oculus Connect, the company’s annual developer conference, goes down this week in San Jose, California on the 11th and 12th at the McEnery Convention Center. If you aren’t attending in person you can catch the keynote livestream on several platforms, including in VR, officially on Rift and Gear VR for the first time.
The Oculus Connect opening keynote will be held on Wednesday, October 11th at 10AM PT (your timezone here). Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and VP of VR Hugo Barra will take to the stage, among others. Oculus is teasing new announcements and content reveals during the keynote. In addition to content, the VR community expects to hear the latest on the standalone ‘Santa Cruz’ Rift prototype that was revealed at last year’s Connect, but on which the company have been silent since.
On the second day of the conference, Thursday, October 12th at 9:30AM PT (your timezone here) Oculus CTO John Carmack will give his signature unscripted keynote. Carmack usually talks deep tech and covers a wide range of VR topics with an emphasis on mobile / Gear VR, which he is closely involved with.
Watch in VR
Those in prior years who have reveled in the irony that Oculus didn’t provide a VR livestream of their Oculus Connect keynote will be happy to know that this year during Oculus Connect 4 they’ll be able to tune in virtually on Rift or Gear VR. A new Oculus Connect app now available for both headsets will let viewers watch both keynotes live in VR. Get them here:
