Learn, Interact & Have Fun

From informative panels and presentations to interactive demo nights, we do our best to curate fun, insightful events and content for this wonderful community. Whether you genuinely enjoy VR games, have your own XR company or have never tried this technology before, SVR has something you will not want to miss.

Join Our Community

We are fans, friends, testers, technologists, designers and developers that are excited about virtual, augmented and mixed reality. We host events, build projects and enjoy a round of whatever game is next in the queue, but above all else we are enthusiastic about sharing knowledge/experiences grounded in immersive technology with everyone in Seattle and around the world.


Workshop: Building an ARt Gallery in the Browser

Join us for a workshop from freelance developer evangelist, Doug Sillars (bio below). He’ll be walking us through the steps for building a virtual ARt gallery with web technology available today, and provide a peek at the new WebXR technology coming to our browsers soon!

🎒What to bring to class:
󠀠󠀠ㅤㅤ☑️Laptop* with your preferred 󠀠IDE and web browser
ㅤㅤ☑️A GitHub account
ㅤㅤ☑️A can do attitude 👍

*We will have a few spare computers onsite, but please plan on bringing your own for the benefit of others.

ㅤㅤ6:15pm – Doors Open*
ㅤㅤ6:30pm – Class in session

*This event will not include food/beverage… so please plan accordingly 🙃

The world of virtual reality allows us to build new 3D interactive spaces that we can fill with anything we want – like the art of the great Renaissance masters. More into Cubism? With a quick click – now the gallery is full of a completely different genre. With new AR features, we can actually build the gallery in our own space – and just as easily swap out the art – all in our browser!
