About Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope was founded in May 2015 by designers René & Selena Pinnell. Joined by producer Jill Klekas, the startup’s mission is to give VR creators the exposure and support they need to do great work. Kaleidoscope showcases finished projects, helps secure funding for future projects, and host events around the world that explore the art, science, and business of virtual reality.

Abou the event

This is a networking event for Virtual Reality creators which is supported by a group of volunteers. The purposes of this event include: create an occasion to let VR creators meet each other, understand VR trends and techniques, know each other’s business and have some fun. Though amazing contents will be presented, this is not an event for providing amusement park like experience simply for entertainment.

For some VR experience offered in the event, you may need to wait a bit to try it, due to the constraint of the number of VR devices available. We also ask for your patience and understanding for that.

Children under 6 will not be admitted.
