CeBIT 2018 gets VR going

Good old CeBIT made a fresh start with the 2018 edition.

Half of the show remained a traditional trade floor centered around data administration and industrial hardw

VR goes to ground at Berlin Gamesweek 2018

My report on this year’s activities at Gamesweek Berlin will be rather short.

VR gets settled at Gamescom 2017

In comparison to last year’s tradeshow, Virtual Reality got a little bit less attention at this year’s Gamescom.
