Respected and longstanding tech news media network TWiT.tv (This Week in Tech) has kept a watchful eye on virtual reality’s growth over the years and tomorrow will live stream coverage of Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe’s opening keynote address at the company’s second developer conference, ‘Connect’. Road to VR Executive Editor Ben Lang will be joining the TWiT team on the TWiT Live Specials broadcast to give you in-depth commentary throughout the live-streamed event.

Despite Oculus founder Palmer Luckey’s best efforts to quell rumours and regulate expectations, hopes are high for some significant and exciting developments from Brendan Iribe’s keynote address at the company’s 2nd developer conference tomorrow.

We know for sure that positional tracking for mobile VR headset Gear VR is bust (for now) and that the company won’t be starting pre-orders for Oculus’ first consumer VR headset, the Rift, thanks to Luckey’s clarifications. However, his assertions that “We will be announcing and co-announcing some really cool stuff,” has kept hopes for interesting, significant news high.

Based in the UK, Paul has been immersed in interactive entertainment for the best part of 27 years and has followed advances in gaming with a passionate fervour. His obsession with graphical fidelity over the years has had him branded a ‘graphics whore’ (which he views as the highest compliment) more than once and he holds a particular candle for the dream of the ultimate immersive gaming experience. Having followed and been disappointed by the original VR explosion of the 90s, he then founded RiftVR.com to follow the new and exciting prospect of the rebirth of VR in products like the Oculus Rift. Paul joined forces with Ben to help build the new Road to VR in preparation for what he sees as VR’s coming of age over the next few years.

    TWIT? Are you kidding me? I was a big TWIT fan – but i stopped BECAUSE of VR!

    I watched the twit-version of the unpack event where they introduced the original GearVR – and the podcast the day after. Leo and the gang thought the GearVR – and VR in general – is the stupidest thing ever. Leo even said something like “who in his right mind wants to strap something on his head and look that stupid” – even when we admitted in the same sentence that he was a backer of the DK1!

    That was the moment when i stopped watching and listening to leo – thinking: “This will change our world – and you don realize it. Itś time to retire, old man…”

    Ah but this time they have our very own Ben Lang to redress the balance. Surely it’s worth returning for that alone? :)

    • MasterElwood

      Hmmm… Ben correcting Leo over and over again?

      DRINKING GAME!!!! :-)))
