V2_ Augmented Reality Ecosystem
V2_Centre for the Unstable Media in Rotterdam on V2_Centre for the Unstable Media in Rotterdam on December 4th invites you to the platform for conversations and opportunities in the Augmented Reality ecosystem. The event brings together the (emerging) ecosystem around AR in the Netherlands and beyond in the following sectors:
• public/governmental • technology • commercial
• education • culture & heritage • artists
Augmented Reality is capable of bringing our online life and layering it into and onto our physical lives. And that is just the beginning of "mixed" reality. Find out how Augmented Reality could work for you. Meet people from different fields and tell them how you are using, developing, integrating AR. Make new contacts, have new insights, strike up new collaborations at this conversation-changing event hosted by the
V2_ Institute which is at the forefront of artistic/technological exploration in the heart of Rotterdam.
The idea is to experience a small number of AR applications, but mainly to have personal interactions and dialogue around how this "new" medium - which is expected to have mass impact on society by 2014 - might develop and how useful collaborations between the sectors might evolve.
