The hype around VR is not going anywhere anytime soon. More and more developers are looking into  development for different VR devices. If you are interested in creating mobile VR experiences, then the following session if for you.

Roberto Lopez Mendez from ARM is coming to DevGAMM Moscow to deliver a talk called  “Optimized Rendering Techniques for Mobile VR”

VR rendering pushes the hardware to the limits and rendering shadows and reflections in VR is challenging. The talk presents highly optimized rendering techniques for shadows and reflections in mobile VR and considers the importance of rendering stereo reflections in VR. Roberto will demonstrate how to implement stereo reflections in Unity.

In this session Roberto will introduce the concept of local cubemaps and will explain how to implement a new shadow rendering technique based on local cubemaps. This technique allows rendering very efficient and high quality shadows, which makes it very suitable for mobile VR.
