REVIEW: 2016 NXNE
Last session of the conference for me was VR is the New Frontier Future of Gaming. Virtual Reality Sasa Marinkovic 28 year veteran who patented Power X press found in many notebooks. He is a global and regional HEAD of VR Software marketing at Radeon Tech at AMD which is a 47 year old company called Advanced Micro Devices, that develops computer processors for business consumer markets with mother board chip sets and microprocessors. They are the 2nd largest supplier and only significant rival is INTEL. Along with Sasa was Henry Faber from Gamma Space a collaborative studio in T.O showcasing power of VR and future of gaming, where designers come together at the non profit arts org. To work and play. Henry enlightened us on the future of VR in music and video games. Ryerson University Associate Professor Richard Lachnan a director of Transmission Zone commentated…a very funny man. 65th Mayor of T.O the honorable John Tory made a visit discussing the importance of music in Toronto and how he wishes to bring music back, to make it a hub and reviving scene once again.
