As the year heads to a close, the anticipation for virtual reality (VR) is gathering momentum. And NVIDIA has helped to raise the tempo by bringing VR to Southeast Asia in a closed door event for analysts, the media and enthusiasts.

Held on December 11 at Crown Plaza Changi Airport in Singapore, the event gave participants the opportunity to try out two of the hottest VR products — Oculus Rift and HTC Vive — powered by NVIDIA technologies.

Oculus Rift lets users immerse in three three-dimensional games (details are under embargo from the content owners), taking gaming to another level.

To experience HTC Vive, NVIDIA set up two dark rooms that functioned as gaming arenas. Participants were engaged in a 20-minute demonstration comprising various applications, including a virtual repairing of a robot and a walk under the sea. The experience was hailed as “awesome”, “impressive” and “fantastic”.

These developments got everyone eagerly looking forward to the launch of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift — hopefully really soon!
