Education and Gaming in Mixed Reality and HoloLens - Seattle

RSVP here

Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 6.29.43 PM.png

The VR/AR Association presents an exciting Mixed Reality and HoloLens event in February. Admission is FREE! The much acclaimed Bart Trzynadlowski will be flying in from NYC to give a special talk titled: Taking Learning and Play to the Next Level: Education and Gaming in Mixed Reality!

Come hear other speakers give short talks on HoloLens and Mixed Reality as well, and catch up on the latest in the world of AR/VR/MR. We'll have several fun hands-on demos for members to try, and plenty of food to eat.

Information regarding our primary talk and speaker:

Mixed reality will have a transformative impact on both education and gaming, providing new ways to visualize, interact, and play. But it also poses unique challenges for both designers and developers -- and where there are challenges to overcome, there are opportunities. Bart Trzynadlowski will demonstrate both a language education game and an action game, discussing in detail lessons learned and thoughts conceived after one year of experimentation with the HoloLens. He'll share demonstrations of unique game play mechanics, some tips for making intelligent use of the player's physical surroundings, and discuss areas where you can help innovate.

Bart Trzynadlowski has been programming since the 6th grade, holds a PhD in electrical engineering, and presently works as a developer in high-frequency trading. He is interested in consumer applications of mixed reality, especially gaming and education. Most of his spare time since June 2016 has been spent experimenting with his HoloLens, leading to rumors that the device has been surgically affixed to his head and that he is in fact a cyborg. These can neither be confirmed nor denied.

------------------------------

We will also hear from Sky Zhou regarding a groundbreaking Mixed Reality painting game, as well as a few words from Jonathan Gennick of Apress/Springer publishing. Please RSVP Today - we look forward to seeing you at the event!
