IVRC is Idaho’s first networking and education council for Idaho’s leaders and innovators interested in virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality. While at Chip Camp they will demonstrate virtual reality technology and its potential impacts on everything from learning, the economy, and industry, to social interactions and entertainment.
