That’s all the highlights from another busy week in the VRAR news, however, I did promise you a bit of an announcement at the end of last week…. I received a bit of good news myself from my friends at Lenovo – I won a competition to join them at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of this month! I’ll be tweeting and writing a follow up blog to keep you up to speed with what’s being showcased from a VRAR perspective.
Get in touch if there’s anything in particular you want me to report back on or better yet, if you’ll be there too!
Have a great week.
