Kicking off TechToks at TokBox

techtoksHere at TokBox, we passionately believe that great products and technology can have a huge impact on the way we live and work. This is especially true when innovative minds from diverse fields and disciplines come together to create them.

That’s why we decided to start hosting TechToks, our new speaking series where we’re inviting industry leaders to speak to an eager audience of technology enthusiasts.

Our goal with TechToks is to :

·   Create a vibrant interdisciplinary community of innovators, technologists, product/design wizards, and all-around problem solvers who are passionate about collaborating, learning and tackling new challenges.

·   Create a dialogue between the interested and the interesting.

We’re excited about the possibilities of TechToks and looking forward to getting as many of you as possible involved.

The Next Generation of Virtual Reality, Josh Carpenter, March 2015

‘The web is wild and weird and creative. We want to unleash the creativity of the web on virtual reality’

Kicking off TechToks for the year, Josh Carpenter, head of Mozilla’s Virtual Reality research team, came along to talk about the next generation of Virtual Reality.

During his talk, Josh spoke about what Virtual Reality is and why everyone is excited about it showing us examples of what people have built already and talking to us about the possibilities of the future.  From space travel to military training applications, it seems as though there are almost unlimited potential uses of Virtual Reality technology.  He then explained where the web and collaboration fit in to the next generation of VR.

I’m sure I’m not only speaking for myself when I say it was fascinating to hear a little bit more about an area of technology where we continually see such impressive innovation and results.  Especially from someone like Josh who works so closely to the development of cutting edge Virtual Reality products and services.

But I don’t want to ruin it for you, you can watch Josh’s full presentation here.
