In addition to these companies, who will also be demoing their content at the event’s exhibit hall, a number of other Nvidia partners will share their VR work at the VR Partner Pavilion, including:

Artec 3D will be scanning people in 3D with their new, NVIDIA Tegra-based handheld Artec Leo scanner. And out on the concourse, they’ll be using GPUs for one-click body scanning in 12 seconds with automatic data post-processing.
Epic Games will showcase high-fidelity VR experiences and new photorealistic content developed with Unreal Engine.
ESI Group is demonstrating IC.IDO, an immersive virtual environment that allows engineers to visualize complex 3D data to validate design decisions, including assembly and service procedures, without the expense of physical prototypes.
NASA has conducted some of the earliest and most advanced R&D in VR. Come see its Hybrid Reality Lab, the space agency’s low-cost, scalable platform to provide an “out of this world” experience for astronauts training for difficult and dangerous missions.
NVIDIA Research will demonstrate perceptually based foveated VR.
OPTIS is showing how it applies NVIDIA VRWorks PhysX and Audio SDKs to help Bentley Motors designers perfect their vehicles and maximize safety by immersing them in accurate and realistic VR environments.

In addition to demos on the exhibit floor, the event has more than 60 talks from VR experts across industries; we outlined a few we’re looking forward to here.
