Rick & Morty co-creator Justin Roiland to keynote VRLA

Justin Roiland, co-creator of Rick & Morty from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, will be delivering VRLA’s Saturday keynote. The expo, which takes place April 14 and 15 at the LA Convention Center, will include demos, educational sessions, experimental work and presentations.

The exhibit floor will feature hardware and software developers, content creators and prototype technology that can only be seen at VRLA. Registration is currently open, with the business-focused two-day “Pro” pass at $299 and a one-day pass for Saturday priced at $40.

Roiland, is also the newly-minted founder of the VR studio Squanchtendo, aims to dive into the surreally funny possibilities of the medium in his keynote, remarking, “What does the future of VR hold? Will there be more wizard games? Are grandmas real? What is a wizard really? Are there wizard grandmas? How does this factor into VR? Please come to my incredible keynote address on the state of VR.”

VRLA is currently accepting applications for its Indie Zone, which offers complimentary exhibition space to small teams who have raised less than $500,000 in venture capital funding or generated less than less than that amount in revenue. Click here to apply.
