VRLA Sets ‘Rick & Morty’ Co-Creator Justin Roiland as Keynote

The VRLA Expo, taking place April 14-15 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, will feature a Keynote Address on Saturday from Justin Roiland, co-creator of Adult Swim hit animated series Rick & Morty. Registration is now open for VRLA, which bills itself as the largest virtual and augmented reality event in the world and will feature an exhibit floor populated by leading hardware and software developers, demos, educational sessions, experimental work and presentations.

“This is the third year of VRLA, and with each event we’ve grown in size and scope. It’s so exciting to serve both the industry and developers who make this whole thing go, as well as the VR-curious enthusiasts who want to see what it’s all about. That we can put Justin Roiland on the same stage as some of the industry’s greatest technical thinkers is a treat, and a testament to the support the community has shown us,”” said event co-founder John Root.

Roiland, also the founder of newly-minted VR studio Squanchtendo, aims to dive into the surreally funny possibilities of the medium in his keynote.

“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? I did all this (simple) math and then made a power point presentation that I **think** maaaayyybe has these questions (and more) all figured out,” the ineffable creative remarked in the announcement. “Please come to my incredible keynote address on the state of VR! You juuuust might learn something, maybe, I don’t know. I can’t make any promises on that because you may already know everything.”

VRLA is currently accepting applications for its Indie Zone, offering free exhibit space to small, innovative teams which have accrued less than $500,000 in venture capital funding or revenue.
