After my talk at the meet.js Lublin about the Gamepad API last month I decided to try something new. I wanted to give a talk about WebVR for some time now, but didn’t want to start without the proper setup. It ended up exactly how I wanted to avoid it: I gave a talk without the working device.
It was my first ever slide deck about WebVR after so many talks about HTML5 games, Firefox OS or Gamepad API. I had my Oculus Rift working at some point, but the only thing I could show was the disconnected device. I couldn’t bring my PC, my MacBook was lagging and the laptop not powerful enough to run the demos smoothly. I decided to talk about it anyway - I hope to have the working setup really soon. After all it’s a lot better to just show the immersive, impressive demos instead of talking about them. I really hope people enjoyed my talk as much as I did and I got them interested in my experiences with this new technology.
I’d like to push the Device Lab idea further and do a proper WebVR Demo Day in Warsaw around October and November and show the demos to everyone who would be interested, but no idea if and how it could end up.
