WHAT A SHOW! We will get more up shortly. These are the openiing remarks for Immersed 2016 and featured Kevin Von Appen, Director of Science Communication for the Ontario Science Centre. Check out all the passion shown by consumers for virtual and augmented reality.
We are very proud to share the developing agenda for Immersed 2016. In particular, many of the sessions being highlighted (with more to come) are all about using virtual reality and immersive technology to make the world a better place. Samples of this include using virtual reality as a form of therapy for the autistic, responsible journalism, using augmented reality to make ordinary locations wonderful repositories for educational content in a big way, and even the concept of how to communicate big ideas in a way that everyone can understand will be discussed. There is actually more to come in this space - so sit tight!
As is the case every year, Immersed will feature senior level talks about the market's future, the latest technologies, new concepts and ideas being developed, 360 content, video games, and more. There is only one Immersed, and it is happening October 16-18, 2016 at the Ontario Science Centre.
In addition to our core event, the public exhibition and education series is planned to have between 8,000 to 9,000 attendees. This is going to be a big deal, and we hope to see you all there!
