Come see Wayfair and Google show the future of online shopping. Mike Festa will present Wayfair Next, his new team for 3D scanning, VR and AR. David Scannell will have the latest on Google Project Tango.

Furniture and home d├ęcor is one of the last remaining categories with a strong brick and mortar presence. Wayfair Next aims to accelerate the shift to buying online by drastically improving the visualization of our products. We are researching novel 3D scanning techniques to digitize our vast catalog. We will be showing two demos: a VR demo using the HTC Vive and an AR demo on the Google Tango. Wayfair is one of the fastest growing tech companies in Boston and we have a lot of openings for exciting careers.



PLEASE NOTE: Our venue requires our guests to sign in with a photo ID at the security desk. When you RSVP you'll get a pop up question; please enter your full name as it appears on your ID. Thanks for your cooperation.
