It’s the future of interactive techniques, live on stage! Watch the most innovative interactive techniques as they are presented and deconstructed live by their creators during SIGGRAPH Asia’s Real-Time Live! experience.
Real-Time Live! is one of the experiences that makes it unique and a must-attend event. Watch as the best of the best in real-time graphics and interactivity come together for a live competition and share their innovations. From mobile games to console games to virtual and augmented reality, creators of cutting-edge real-time graphics give you a look under the hood of their creations and share the techniques they use to achieve jaw-dropping results.
Attending Real-Time Live! is cool and presenting is a rush. If you have been pushing the boundaries of what is possible in real-time, and you think milliseconds are too large of a granularity in which to measure time, we want your submissions!
A jury of industry experts will recommend which submissions make it on stage.
