I'll share some favorite news and announcements since we last met.

7:30 --> Magic Leap for Architecture and Theatre
Alex Coulombe, Creative Director of Agile Lens, will share some of the work his company has done prototyping experiences both for static environments (architecture) as well as live performers (theatre). Tools discussed will include DepthKit, ARCore, ARKit, Vuforia, and whatever we call what’s happening inside the Magic Leap.

7:50 --> Hacking Reality
Abhishek Singh, the creator of viral AR demos such as playing Super Mario in Central Park with a Hololens and taking Street Fighter into the real world, showcases some of his most popular experiments and prototypes using ARKit.

8:10 --> Luxury Escapism: David Lobser and Tyler Pridgen
Tyler Pridgen and David Lobser will present Luxury Escapism: The Oddly Satisfying Spa, New York's first digital spa. They will talk about using new and old technology to create entrancing, comforting, therapeutic experiences. These include everything from kinetic sand and vibrating waterbeds to sound baths and virtual reality. Right now we are augmenting our reality with warm tea and gentle incense rather than with phones or AR headsets. You can book a two hour session at https://www.luxuryescapism.com.
