Theater Sneak Peek: Mixing Reality

Stephanie Wells
November 6, 2017

You know about reality because you live in it. You’ve likely experienced virtual reality (VR), or at least heard of it—headsets that immerse you in a digital world. And if you’ve played Pokémon GO, you know what augmented reality (AR) is—digital forms imposed on real space by a device. Put them all together and what do you get? Mixed reality. And in industry, that’s where a lot of the action is, blending real worlds and virtual worlds to create better outcomes in architecture, manufacturing, and media.

Join us on Wednesday, November 15, 8:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m., in the AU Theater as we welcome 4 leaders in mixed reality technologies, including execs and technologists from Aurecon, Autodesk, Dell, and Steelcase. Stop in for their 15-minute presentations and get your mind blown.
