For decades, comprehensive virtual reality was a pipe dream of startup founders and sci-fi fanatics. People dreamt about being placed in completely different universes with nothing more than a headset and some sensors. Today, this technology has become readily available to anyone with a smartphone and $40 and tech enthusiasts are clambering to get their hands on this virtual world. Fortunately, at Innovate! and Celebrate 2016, you’ll be able to get the low-down on virtual reality from some of the biggest names in the business.

We’ll be holding a panel with three VR innovators who can discuss how developers and device companies are enhancing this technology and bridging industries to expand usage. Check them out below!
