Just got back from the Level Up Gaming Showcase. It's really amazing to see all the young talent Ontario universities and colleges have to offer. It's even MORE amazing to see who came down to see what some of these young minds had to share!
Visiting our immersive technology demo was none other than Dr. Steve Mann. With countless inventions under his belt, he is considered the father of wearable computing, he is a tenured professor at the University of Toronto, AND he is the General Chair of the IEEE International Symposium on Technology and Society and Associate Editor of IEEE Technology and Society.
Ok, this is the plan. As promised, Kris Roberts put together some tremendous coverage for GDC 2013 including some cool finds that haven't been well featured as far as we can tell. We will start to get this coverage up by Thursday this week.
Why Thursday? We've been working hard getting the Level Up Gaming Showcase together, and that is running tomorrow evening. Some AR prototypes are going to be demonstrated, and we are also going to be showing the new EyeFly 3D add-on for iPhone and Android smartphones.
The event is free to attend, so I look forward to seeing some of you there!
Are there fellow Toronto Canucks out there? Be sure to drop by The Level Up Gaming Showcase this coming Wednesday!
Each year, Ontario's leading universities and colleges with game development programs get together to showcase their students work. It's an opportunity for pupils to show their stuff, it's an opportunity for industry to get an early look at the talent coming down the pipe, and in this case, it's a chance to see some new technologies for the first time.
Just some of the leading sponsors include AMD, NBC Universal, Microsoft, Epson, Nanoveu, Pizza Pizza, and more!
