VR gadgets are absolutely the “hottest” tech this year. In China alone, they’ve sucked in millions of dollars of investment. Analysts say that VR will be a revolution in the life of the otaku, aka Zhai Nan in Chinese. Imagine playing Summer Lesson – a flirting VR game – with your ideal girlfriend in a world that only belongs to the two of you! Well, maybe you might want something else, like Tilt Brush, a 3D painting simulator.
Anyway, this is your big chance to experience VR. In this event of Tech Junction, AllChinaTech has partnered with 87870, the largest VR news site in China, who will generously present some of the most popular VR games, alongside VR devices like the HTC Vive for event participants to interact with.
We’ll also have a Q&A session with Andrew D. Kim, CEO of 87870. He will share his insights on the current technologies and investment activity in the VR sector in China, knowledge that may help people of interest make strategic decisions this year and beyond.
