PIGSquad and Intel Buzz Workshop for Game Developers

I’ll be on a panel with the inimitable Jessica Outlaw, Paul Reynolds, and Cristiano Ferreira this Saturday, August 19, talking about human behavior in VR and real-world spaces.

Get your tickets here and RSVP to the Facebook invite, and I’ll see you on Saturday.
