Join us for a weekend of breakout sessions, networking with some amazing developers, and of course the chance to work with some cool new tools in both VR and AR.


Don't have an idea? No sweat, Hugh Seaton will lead an ideation that'll be fun, painless and get you to a great idea quickly.

Don't have a team? Again no sweat, the ideation process is also where you can find teams of people stoked about the same idea. 

Don't want to be in a team? There are no set team sizes - teams of one or twenty are fine.

Don't know how to create VR? You'll find plenty of folks that are awesome VR developers, so bring your ideas, your talent, and your excitement.

Friday is free to attend, so join us and decide on the spot!

NY Media Lab is giving us tickets to their annual summit for the top 2 teams!

Winners will be featured at the upcoming NYVR Expo in October - so come, join us and win fame!
