AR/VR Meetup London (Aug)

In addition to to my classes (at Middlesex University), I am and always have been - on the lookout for related expos, conferences, exhibitions and meetups

Here’s one organised by @Steve Dann - CEO of Amplified Robot.

Among the (current) tech and developments highlighted and discussed were:

1. Gartner’s Hype Cyde 2015 - and interestingly - as a side note! (Hmm)

Is Computing Everywhere also Augmented and Virtual Reality?

2. Next - http://avegant.com/

3. ILMxLAB -  www.ilmxlab.com

4. ODG (Wearable Tech) Glasses -  www.osterhoutgroup.com
