Aside from the usual keynotes from Oculus executives, sessions include a range of VR topics focusing on VR game development, VR video/filmmaking, and creating social VR experiences.
Sessions involving Oculus Touch—the company’s VR motion controller which is promised to launch by the end of the year—are likely to be a focus as well, and we expect to hear the Touch release date and price at the conference’s opening keynote on Thursday at 10AM PT. Rounding out Oculus Connect will be a closing keynote from CTO John Carmack.
For those unable to attend the conference, Carmack confirmed via a tweet today that the conference will be streamed via Twitch and in virtual reality via NextVR, a firm known for streaming sporting and other events in VR through their Gear VR app.
