Vancouver Siggraph 2014

ForgeFX would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth at Siggraph last week. The International Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques attracted over 14,000 artists, game developers, and filmmakers from more than 70 countries gathering to experience the latest in computer graphics and interactive techniques.

This year's conference had more than 40,000 square feet of exhibit space hosting more than 170 participating companies showcasing their products and services. From the release of the Oculus Rift DK2, to Intel's demonstration of the new DirectX 12 API, to Sony's Morpheus virtual reality head-mounted display running on a PCthere was something from everyone at this year's Siggraph.

Oculus VR, makers of the low-latency virtual reality headset that combines stereoscopic 3D with head movement tracking, demonstrated their new Oculus DK2. The new version is a huge improvement in our opinion, and something that is ready for deployment for virtual job training simulations.
"SIGGRAPH 2014 offered an incredible exhibition experience, innovative and inspiring content, and celebrated the impact that graphics and technology can have in everyday life."

ForgeFX had a great time demonstrating our work to everyone who braved the long lines to get their hands on our simulators, including our job training simulators that utilized the Oculus Rift. If didn't get a chance to try them out at please feel free to contact us to schedule a demonstration, or come find us later this year at DevLearn or I/ITSEC. Contact us on ForgeFX Get updates by liking us on Facebook Get updates on Facebook Get tweets by following us on Twitter Get tweets on Twitter Stay connected by following us on LinkedIn Connect on LinkedIn Watch videos by subscribing to ForgeFX on YouTube Watch on YouTube
