There is a massive shift coming in how humans interact with the digital world. Instead of moving a mouse around a desk or tapping on a 2-dimensional screen, we are now able to reach out and touch objects with virtual hands in virtual worlds, or watch as digital objects come to life in your own room, yard or factory.

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.
