47th Annual Convention
Virtual 3D-Con 2021 — August 12-15

Virtual Reality


Digital stereoscopes are now a reality, and they're called Virtual Reality headsets! This year, the convention will stream live to AltSpaceVR where stereo and VR180 photos and videos blend seamlessly with reality. We'll hold a VR Special Interest Group to discuss stereo 3D and VR, and Jim Harp will hold a workshop on how to bring stereo objects into VR using Unity.

To see events when they happen in AltSpace, log in to AltSpace and Subscribe to our Channel.

Please refer to our Altspace Guide for instructions.
