Mixed Reality: After the Magic is Gone…

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
- Arthur C. Clarke

By this point you’ve probably experienced some form of augmented reality, virtual reality, or mixed reality, and chances are you were wowed. The initial experience may have seemed like magic. For many we’re still in that honeymoon phase, we’re head-over-heels in love with this technology. But what happens after the magic is gone? The next phase is critical. How do weapply these technologies in a way that makes sense for our business? How do we add real value to justify the investment? 

In this presentation you will:

  • Learn the key differences between virtual and augmented reality
  • Get hands on experience with each
  • Discuss value-adding applications for the training industry

Sandwiches and refreshments will be provided.
