ARCHI - Augmented Reality Chicago

Google Glass, Oculus Rift, and SpiderSense!

We have an amazing line-up for this month's Meetup, with a trio of wearable digital toys.

Our headliner is Victor Mateevitsi, the inventor of SpiderSense, "a wearable device that projects the wearer’s near environment on the skin and allows for directional awareness of objects around him".

I'll have my Google Glass that people can try out, and Brian Schrank will be bringing along an Oculus Rift to play with as well.


5:30 - 6:00: Networking

6:00 - 7:00: Live demos and presentations

- Victor Mateevitsi (Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at UIC) - SpiderSense demo and presentation

- Brian Schrank (DePaul University) - Demo of Occulus Rift. (And possibly a suprise demo or two on the Occulus developed by his students at DePaul University's College of Computing and Digital Media.)

- Patrick O'Shaughnessey (Patched Reality) - Google Glass and AR News. I'll share my first month's experience with Glass, and the latest and greatest news from the Augmented World.

- Joseph Juhnke (The Jig Lab) - Highly accurate camera-based 3D scanning.

7:00 - onward... Member announcements,  Networking, and trying out Google Glass and Oculus Rift

Looking forward to seeing you!

    That was an awesome presentation! I really enjoyed trying out the Unity 3D game the DePaul team created using the Rift, and Patrick's Star Trek game. Great work Patrick and DePaul Team!

      No problem. Hope you enjoy it. Forgot to mention Jig Lab's impressive work with stereo photography. It was very exciting, especially to a game developer like myself. I see the potential to save a lot of time. Look forward to seeing the end result.
