    Hi Shivang, we’re currently in the process of evaluating your proposal and like it. How do you intend to project Cardboard visualization on stage? Or would you have a fewer number of those and pass them around the audience?

      Hi Sandhya, thanks a lot for considering my proposal, If i am provided with a stable internet connection(which i will be, I guess!) then i can use my desktop browser based VR content to project it directly on screens using my laptop.
      Another way to do this is connecting my android device and screencasting on laptop which in turn can be easily projected on stage. A lot of apps and Remote viewers are available to do this task.
      The second method can directly project the VR experience, Otherwise browser based VR works fine as far as a simplistic solution is required.

      Thanks for posting your question. :) looking forward to bringing out more to this.

      If we talk about personalised experience then we would require atleast 10-15 headsets that needs to be circulated but as per my previous experience even a fewer number of those will even do.

        Hi Shivang, we like the idea. Would you want to consider converting this to a workshop for 15 to 20 people instead of a talk? This will be a more hands-on experience for everyone interested. Duration could be from 60 to 90 minutes.
