Frequently Asked Questions

What is VRHack@Cal?

Cal VRathon is a Coding and Graphic Design Competition that aims to bring together the brightest minds from Berkeley, Stanford and many other bay area schools. With a goal to create more new ideas and at the same time give students immersive experience and education about Virtual Reality, we plan to organize speaker event and virtual reality hackathon in this one day event. This is a wonderful opportunity for attendees to meet with other VR engineers, companies, and learn about front-end VR software and hardware technology by interacting with leaders in the industry.


While the physical hackathon event is only 5 hours long, teams can go home and have a 48 hour period to finish and submit. Visit the Devpost for more logistical information.


Our mission is to give participants an immersive experience with virtual reality and at the same time help shape the future of virtual reality by providing the stage for talented student developers to create and innovate.
