Topic: VR & Google Street & 360 degree video shooting

Thanks to Man Khong & EDC, we had the chance to try on Virtual Reality! Technology is really getting more sophisticated day by day. Our members were truly excited by the VR experience.  Man Khong was kind enough to help the members to try on the high-tech devices, and explained to them how they function. Oh yeah! He also let some of us to play Insidious on the VR gadget. Exceptionally exciting and scary once the lights were turned off!
