Augmented and Virtual Reality at Best Buy


Augmented and virtual reality have been some of the most talked about technologies this past year. We decided to showcase the various technologies that are on the market (or soon to be released) in this space.

We had around 40 members attend this event on September 21, 2016.

Playstation 4 VR

Tracy from Sony/Playstation was on site to give us a demo of the (now-released) Sony Playstation VR.
