RSVP here

Screen Shot 2018-11-27 at 5.45.40 PM.png

There is a massive shift coming in how humans interact with the digital world.

At this event you'll get a chance to hear from and talk with people and companies in the community who are actively pushing forward with this exciting new technology. Not only that, we will have several devices set up for you to try, including an Oculus Rift for Virtual Reality, an Oculus Go, and a Magic Leap One for Augmented Reality. We will also have Augmented Reality demos running on iPads, the AR device that many people may not even realize they own.

Launch Event of our VRARA Malaysia Chapter

To register for this event, email malaysia@thevrara.com

Screen Shot 2018-12-06 at 5.08.07 PM.png

VR/AR is the next industrial revolution. Like mobiles and Internet, it is set to revolutionise our entire Life, Learning & Workplace approaches, with an adoption many times faster than the mobile phone. Projected to be a US$150B marketplace by 2025, it could command a CAGR of over 50% in Malaysia.

However, unlike the internet and mobile adoption VR/AR will impact and generate opportunities for the entire economic ecosystem, redefining and disrupting, learning, jobs, content and workplace integration, in all sectors of the economy. And in Malaysia it opens up new possibilities to tackle Sustainable Development Goals, with an entirely new perspective and a very powerful and cost effective tools up our sleeves. Our currently challenged demographic dividend can really get a boost to recreate earning potentials on the national as well as international levels, countering the threats of job losses due to the newer technologies.

The VR/AR Association (VRARA) is an international industry association for virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality connecting leading solution providers with over 50 chapters around the world.

The VRARA has decided to launch The Malaysia Chapter with Dr. Andrew Yew and Mundzir Abdul Latif, partners in Ministry XR - a technology pioneer specialised on extended Reality (XR) and we have invited you today to seek your guidance and participation to make Malaysia a market leader in this revolution.

The Event aims at keeping abreast of the current development in VR/AR/MR technologies and brings leading organizations to present the latest innovations in this area.

Keynote Presentation Synopsis: VR / AR: Bridging the Gap between the Intangible and the Built Environment

Virtual reality and augmented reality, like many technologies, began as a concept of experiencing intangible objects and environments digitally. As technology progressed, that concept became a reality and has transformed into a multibillion-dollar industry that allows the real world to be virtualized and augmented. In today’s AEC industry, architects, engineers, and owners have to deal with intangible project concepts, such as how people experience time and space in the built environment. This presentation discusses how we can use VR / AR to design and develop these environments, producing outcomes that better serve the users that inhabit them.

Presenter Bio: Katy Rupp, Architectural Designer, Ghafari Associates

As one of Ghafari’s leading champions of virtual reality technologies, Architectural Designer Katy Rupp is skilled at developing highly immersive visuals that enable project stakeholders to virtually explore the physical environments we design long before they are ever constructed. She leads internal VR training and has also presented and demoed these technologies at a variety of industry forums, including most recently at the 2018 AIA Detroit Celebration of Architecture as part of the Technology in Architecture Practice / Detroit Area BIM User Group exhibit.

Katy joined Ghafari in 2014 and has developed a portfolio that includes healthcare, automotive, hospitality, commercial, residential, and education-sector projects. She holds a Master of Architecture from Boston Architectural College and a Bachelor of Science in architecture from Lawrence Technological University.

Firm Overview: Ghafari Associates

Recognized as the “2017 Design Firm of the Year” by Engineering News-Record Midwest, Ghafari Associates is a global engineering, architecture, process design, consulting, and construction services firm driven to meet the distinct needs of every client.

Creating Virtual Reality - Charleston

RSVP here

Screen Shot 2018-11-09 at 2.07.11 PM.png

Details

Things you'll get to do at this event:

— Share a drink and some appetizers (or dinner if you like) with people who are interested in VR/AR. I'll put out the first round of apps, and there will be servers there to bring drinks or other food.

— Try out an Oculus Rift and Oculus Go if you haven't (I'll bring at least those along. If you have other rigs that are semi-portable and you're willing to share, please bring them at 5:30 for setup.)

— Hear about creating in 3D. This will be an overview talk that goes over the high level basics of how to get started with the art, programming, modeling, etc.

We'll cover the options of Unity, Unreal, or Web VR, as well as creating art with Maya, Blender, and even inside VR with Oculus Medium. If you have any experience creating with 2D graphics programs or in programming for the web or other platforms but haven't tried for 3D, there are some differences, but you'll probably be surprised how many parallels there are and how much the software does for you.

If you love VR or are fascinated by where it's headed but haven't thought about creating for it yet, this is just the talk for you. If you're a creator but have never tried VR, then come early to give it a try and I'm pretty sure you'll walk away loving it. If you're a pro at this and know the basics already, then come and share your perspective as well and hang out with folks who feel like this stuff if the future. Whatever the case, see you then!
