CES 2014 - Last year when I met with Oculus VR here in Australia at PAX AU, I walked away knowing that the future of VR was in good hands. Now, the creator of Oculus Rift, Palmer Luckey, has been invited to the White House's We the Geeks: Future of Computing event.

Luckey isn't the only big name going, as we'll also see Mark Papermaster, who is the Chief Technology Officer at AMD, Alex Hawkinson, the CEO of SmartThings, Alex Kipman from the Microsoft Kinect team, and Wil Wheaton, who starred on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and has a kick ass role on The Big Bang Theory, too. The event takes place on January 8, where a bunch of the in-people of tech will be there to talk about the following points of discussion:

 

  • What new computing advancements might we see in the next few years? What about 10-15 years from now?
  • What are the technological breakthroughs that need to happen to get there?
  • And finally, what might be the impact of the ever growing intelligent connection of people, processes, data and things?
