When FaceBook purchased Oculus for $2 Billion in cash and stock at the beginning of 2014 it really put an exclamation point on a major new reboot of VR technologies that was already well underway. VR has a been incrementally evolving since the 1950’s, but the new tsunami of cheap 3D displays, motion tracking, biosensors, and an exploding hacker/maker community have catapulted VR from futurist science fiction to a viable digital health solution of today.

This session put’s this transition in perspective from where we’ve been to where the VR Reboot is going. We will sort through the ins-and-outs of a plethora of new products and important known issues about of VR so attendees can better take advantage of the coming wave of headsets, SDKs, peripherals, and claims.
