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.
