UPDATE, Wednesday, April 6, 2016: It's here! If you signed up, we look forward to seeing you in San Francisco later today. We're officially sold out, but if you want CNET VR Day to come back for Round 2 (maybe to a city near you!), please let us know here and we'll keep you updated when we plan another.
If we've learned anything from the launch of the Oculus Rift this week, it's that people are excited about virtual reality -- and the potential of VR in general. Will it change lives? Is it just for gaming? Is it just the biggest ViewMaster the world's ever seen? Or is it just one big nerdgasm? That's still TBD.
But at CNET we serve the community's needs by helping you figure out how technology fits into your current -- and future -- lives, and we have been for more than 20 years. And since VR is one of those things you really have to experience firsthand, we had an idea. Let's open our doors, gather up all of the VR gear we can find, and let you, our community, come try it out!
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PT, next Wednesday, April 6, at CNET's San Francisco headquarters we're having a VR Day. Anyone is welcome to attend (it's free!), but you must sign-up to get an e-ticket in advance (tickets are very limited).
Don't miss out on this opportunity to go hands on (eyes on?) with the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR and HTC Vive. We'll have some games and other VR experiences ready for you. Plus you'll get to meet CNET staff and editors and ask your most burning tech questions in person. We'll also have some fun giveaways at the event.
So sign up now!
If you are NOT in the Bay Area, you can fill out this form to let us know you'd like an event like this in your area. If there's enough interest and excitement, we'll try to rinse and repeat as much as we can. Can't wait to meet you!
