    I so want a VRSCC (Virtual Reality Santa Clara County) meetup equivalent to VRLA that gets similar interest from vendors.

  • Will I be seeing you there this Saturday? Really looking forward to checking out all the exhibitors. Praise Oculus for having their DK2 there. So many folks don’t even have theirs around here. Plus having an opportunity to try the new STEM is an undeniable opportunity. Going to be a good weekend.
