The present and future of virtual reality news and technology

1. Mobile World Congress (MWC) has been canceled due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus outbreak. Following a week in which companies and exhibitors (including Ericsson, LG, Nvidia, Intel, Sony, Amazon, Cisco, and Nokia) pulled out of the world's biggest phone show, organizer the GSM Association (GSMA) said in a statement that travel concerns and other circumstances made it impossible for it to hold the event, adding that "Our sympathies at this time are with those affected in China, and all around the world.” MWC (which was scheduled to take place in Barcelona between Feb. 24 and 27) was set to feature a big Chinese phone maker presence, with all of the country’s major smartphone brands set to appear at the show. In recent years, MWC had also become an important date in the immersive tech calendar, with the HoloLens 2 being unveiled at last year's event. It is now expected that any announcement companies such as Microsoft, Sony, Unity, and Facebook have to make will be pushed to the Game Developers Conference (GDC), which is set to take place in March. It remains to be seen whether the coronavirus disruption extends to that event as well. – THE VERGE
