With VR, AR, and mixed reality changing life, media, healthcare, entertainment and business as we know it, entire industries and countless entrepreneurs are currently assessing how they can best capitalize on the mammoth opportunities at hand.
Fortunately, they will get some help next month. On May 3, the MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge (MITEF) Innovation Series, along with the Boston VR Meetup and the Boston AR Meetup, will host a “deep dive into the reality of augmented, virtual and mixed reality.”
According to a statement provided to VRJournal on Thursday:
Set for 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at MIT’s Bartos Theater, the evening will feature insights from early stage entrepreneurs to established large market cap players creating VR applications, hardware and development support systems as well as the experts who finance and write about this new digital medium. Attendees will also have an opportunity to try out some of the latest VR/AR hardware systems and software, including VirZoom and HoloLens applications.
“Driving innovation in gaming, therapies, training and more, augmented and virtual reality have the potential to change how we see the world,” said Katja Wald, executive director of MITEF Cambridge. “In fact, it can transport us to new places we may never see otherwise. The use of AR/VR goes well beyond entertainment and many of the leaders driving this revolution are right here in the Boston area. We’re excited to bring many of the most influential people in this community together to discuss where the market is today, where it’s going and how we’re likely to get there.”
