This week virtual reality fans in the US and China and those lucky enough to find themselves in either Anaheim California or Shanghai have a real treat in store for them.

The 43rd SIGGRAPH Conference on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques is a five-day event covering computer graphics research, creative adventures in digital media, immersive realities, emerging interactive technologies and advanced mobile systems. There are great opportunities for hands-on interaction with apps, mobile VR, haptic technologies, real-time game sequences, 3D printing, and immersive virtual reality experiences. The conference is until this Thursday.

Starting on Thursday and going on until next Monday, is ChinaJoy 2016, China’s largest gaming and digital entertainment exhibition. ChinaJoy is not just a show for games. It’s a huge digital entertainment event that features the latest in technology life trends. At ChinaJoy, you can play the latest games, go hands-on with the latest fashionable hardware technologies, and attend a wide range of forums and conferences. Of course, the event is also the home of the Comic & Animation World Amazing Expo. Head to the Shanghai New International Expo Center for what is sure to be an exhilarating experience, if somewhat exhausting!
