Description

Andrew 'Boz' Bosworth is Facebook's VP responsible for VR and AR. He joins Matt Navarra and Martin 'SFP' Bryant moments after stepping off the stage at Oculus Connect 6, Facebook's latest VR developer conference. He talks us through some of the biggest news from the event and we explore how important virtual worlds could become to our lives in the future. 


Is Facebook Horizon a second chance for Second Life? How will Oculus Business bring VR to the office? Can Facebook convince the public to put Portal cameras in their living rooms? How do the forthcoming AR glasses fit into Facebook's plans, and why was Boz's doctor using Google Glass while treating him recently? And is Facebook the right company to be doing all of this VR and AR stuff anyway?


Meanwhile, Matt and Martin talk over the week’s news and share the latest tests and tools you need to know about.
