WebXR: Virtual and Augmented Reality on the Web

Iker Jamardo Tech Lead Google Daydream

A deep dive into the current state of the Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies on the web, in order to answer some very important questions: What can be done in VR/AR on the web today? How can the web be a game changer for VR and AR? What is the future for the VR/AR web? This talk will show the most outstanding examples of VR/AR websites to date, it will cover the progress on the standards and the most cutting edge browser prototypes available, all trying to respond to these questions.

Iker Jamardo

With years of experience in the video game industry, both as an engineer for AAA PC games and as CTO of one of the first HTML5 smartphone game technology startups (Ludei), Iker has also been a professor and researcher at his alma mater, the University of Deusto in Spain working on multimedia, web accessibility and VR and AR for over 10 years.

Lately, he has been actively working on immersive technologies, trying to expose them on the web, first as a freelancer and now as the technical lead for the WebXR team inside Google Daydream. He is the main engineer behind the first Tango based Chromium prototype to expose Augmented Reality capabilities on the web and is a member of the WebVR standardisation group.
