Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality Event

This Tuesday, I went to a Virtual/Augmented Reality event at SRI International Headquarters. The event was hosted by VLABS.

The first hour included a presentation of 7 different virtual/augmented reality companies such as a small 3D consumer camera and smart glasses that allow business to see much more about their products.

The second hour included a panel discussion with panelists:

  • Dr. Yue Fei, Founder and CTOuSens
  • Alberto Torres, CEOAtheer
  • Eric Johnsen, Business Development, Augmented Reality & Tango, Google
  • Ebbe Altberg, CEO, Linden Lab / Project Sansar
  • Bilal Zuberi, Partner, Lux Capital

The topics that the panelists covered were very interesting. One main point was the fact that augmented and virtual reality are 2 very different things.

Augmented Reality: live view of a real-world environment (like Pokemon Go)

Virtual Reality: computer technologies that use software to generate images

I really enjoyed the event and learning about new things/products in virtual/augmented reality. I believe that augmented reality will change the world that we have today. Between virtual and augmented, I think that augmented reality will be more accessible to the rest of the world and better for the future to use.
