Virtual Reality headsets are becoming more and more accessible to consumers, offering an immersive computing platform with both new opportunities and challenges. The Immersive Web Working Group at the W3C is making VR and AR first class citizens of the Web ecosystem enabling new types of browsers and content. Diego will give an overview of upcoming standards, new types of Web experiences and tools for content creation. There will be a demo station at the end for anybody to try web based VR experiences.
