PANEL GAMING AND VIRTUAL REALITY

 Over time, the user becomes increasingly demanding and begins to research new ways that can amplify the entertainment experience. We must therefore come up with new strategies and sophisticated technologies to satisfy this desire for renewal.

Among these we find the Virtual Reality products, a technology that slowly begins to spread on the market, gaining the trust of the public.

In cinemas, we are already used to the so-called "3D glasses" that improve the consumer's fruitive experience, but they can be more or less sophisticated and are increasingly compatible with all models of smartphones.

3D glasses are less expensive than PC viewers, such as the “HTC Vive” which improves online gaming activity. Halfway there is the Sony PlayStation VR at an affordable price and without too many complications in the operation.

Virtual Reality is increasingly gaining market share, it has become a fascinating technology for those who feel the need to escape from everyday reality.

Moderator: Eleonora De Nardis, Sociologist, professional journalist and writer.

Giovanni Caturano, CEO of SpinVector

Marco Pizzoni, CEO of Join4B and IMRA vice president
