The Scoop on VR in China

A boots-on-the-ground view from ex-pat VR pioneer Nikk Mitchell.

VR wunderkind and FXG CEO Nikk Mitchell gave the inside scoop on the state of Chinese VR in an engaging presentation at the 2018 IVRPA Conference in Tokyo. I had the pleasure of meeting Nikk in 2015 when he hosted a VR salon in Beijing (in fluent Mandarin), and have enjoyed working with him since then on Chinese VR events and projects.

Nikk covers off on the history of VR in China, his own adventures & experience in the field, and China’s VR gold rush and VR winter with candid good humor. His presentation gives insight into China’s VR incubator / accelerator scene, the future of VR in China (and of China in VR), and how you can dive into the scrum.

Check yourself before you wreck yourself.
