Speaker and Presenter Information

Keynote Speaker:


Palmer Luckey


Anduril Industries


Palmer Luckey is the founder of Anduril Industries. He is also the inventor and designer of the Oculus Rift, a virtual reality head-mounted display, and the founder of Oculus VR. He founded Oculus in 2012 after experimenting with his own VR designs at the age of 16 in his parents’ garage. Oculus was acquired by Facebook two years later. His deep interest in defense technology was driven by his time at the USC ICT MxR lab, where he built hardware used to research immersive PTSD treatment for U.S. veterans. He continued to support various military applications of VR during his time at Oculus, informing his belief that radical modernization of U.S. military technology is a prerequisite for preserving our competitive advantage. This passion led to Palmer founding Anduril in 2017.
