Oculus Connect 6 is fast approaching, and while today is technically the last day for registration, you can still follow along with the company’s annual developer conference next week both in and outside of VR.
Taking place on September 25th and 26th at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in California, this year promises to be where “the next chapter for AR and VR begins,” Oculus says.
If you’re looking for VR inception (watching a livestream about VR, in VR), thankfully there’s a few ways:
If you have a Oculus Quest or Go, the company is putting out an Oculus Venues livestream event for both days, which will let you and other headset users mingle and watch together in a large-format theater.
If you have a PC VR headset, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows VR headsets, you’ll be able to catch both day’s keynotes in Bigscreen VR, the social VR platform that lets you share your desktop with other users.
Bigscreen is available on the Oculus platform for Quest and Rift, and on Steam for Rift, Vive, Index, and Windows VR headsets.
Day one’s keynote, which takes place on September 25th at 10 AM PT (local time here) will include some of the most important announcements. Day two’s keynote, which starts the following day at the same time, will feature Oculus CTO John Carmack and his patented unscripted speech.
