We're diving head-first into the world of virtual and augmented reality next month at the inaugural Engadget Experience. The event, which takes place at LA's Ace Hotel on November 14th, will bring together pioneering minds in these new mediums. (Tickets are available here.) It's almost impossible to discuss VR and AR without considering how far they've come over the past few years, and where they're headed in the future. That's what we'll be tackling in "The Big Picture," a panel discussion with Marcie Jastrow of the Technicolor Experience Center; Jen Dennis from Ridley Scott's RSA Films; and Ruthie Doyle from Sundance's New Frontier.

We'll tap into the panelists's diverse industry experience to explore the biggest issues facing AR and VR today; how they'll co-exist moving forward; and what, specifically, these new technologies offer that existing mediums don't. And that's just a start.

The VR and AR industry are still in their early stages. It's reminiscent of where the internet was in the '90s, long before it became an essential part of our lives. Call it the "Wild West" period -- an exciting time where the rules are still being written for new technology. As we explore the new opportunities in VR and AR, it's important that we keep an eye forward to avoid pitfalls, and make sure it's something normal people will actually want to use.
