This week, Joseph and UploadVR Games Editor David Jagneaux (subbing for the wonderful Jason, who’s literally in China right now) tackle more than a few big news stories from the world of VR. WorldViz Founder and President Peter Schlueer joins us to talk about bringing warehouse-level motion tracking to Unreal Engine 4 and Unity 5 – the two most widely used game engines currently around for VR – and what that means for the future of big, BIG virtual reality simulations.
