Virtual Reality Has Arrived

I think it is finally safe to say that Virtual Reality (VR) has arrived for the consumer, a statement we've been hoping to say for decades, and one we've been skeptical to say even as all signs were pointing to it. With the recent release of affordable consumer-ready VR devices by a number of manufacturers, and tools to produce VR applications readily accessible, the creation and deployment of high quality VR apps is finally a reality. These VR apps can now easily be deployed and networked, delivering high-quality interactive multi-user VR solutions to the public— the dream ever since we first read Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash.

ForgeFX Simulations at the Silicon Valley Virtual Reality (SVVR) Conference and Expo

ForgeFX Simulations is excited to be participating at SVVR this year, the largest professional event for the Virtual Reality industry, and this year’s show should be the most exciting one yet with the recent release of the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive and Valve's SteamVR. We are looking forward to demonstrating an array of the VR applications we've been working on, especially the next generation, Oculus Rift-enabled, aircraft deicing simulator we're currently building for Global Ground Support.
