One of the best things about playing with VR is the social experience. That sentence usually gets some strange looks from folks who don't know better, but it's true. VR meetups are more personable than group video chat or text, if only because of the immersion offered by your headset. If you're a new VR Head and have not yet had this particular experience, or if you're a VR veteran looking to hang out with other users, Thursday night is your night. We're getting the whole team together in AltSpace, and we'd love it if you could join us!
For the uninitiated, Altspace VR is a social platform for interacting with people all over the world through shared virtual spaces. The app offers up a huge variety of virtual spaces to hang out in, and the one we've chosen is all about showing off the things that make AltSpace special.
The party starts at 8pm Eastern, just follow this link here. If you have an Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or Samsung Gear VR make sure you install the Altspace VR app so you're ready to go when the virtual room opens up. If you don't have one of those three, and would still like to participate, you can install the Desktop client for Altspace on Windows or Mac and join the party from your 2D display. As long as you have a microphone, you can join the conversation and chat with us about everything happening in VR right now.
We're looking forward to seeing you in VR!
