Next Meetup

AR for the Operating Room & DICOM VR
Molly Flexman of Philips will present how augmented reality can influence the future of healthcare by transforming the operating room. She and her colleagues will discuss how AR wearables can address key clinical challenges, describe some recent examples of AR in the OR, and will share their AR application for image-guided therapy developed within Philips Research. A live demonstration of their technology will be shown on the Hololens. Also, Christopher Williams will demonstrate the VR tool that he and Konstantin Kovtun developed for navigating 3D CAT scan data using two linked HTC Vives! Who is Boston VR and how do I get involved? BostonVR is a 501c3 certified non-profit and any proceeds will go towards funding more VR events and making Boston into a VR hub! Want to demo your project at Boston VR?

What we're about

We're here to talk about, program, share, and demonstrate software, hardware, and ideas for the upcoming new wave of virtual reality. Whether you're an avatar who spends more time in virtual worlds than the real one or someone who's never even worn a head mounted display, you'll find a great group of people who love VR. Each month we bring in presenters from companies who are pioneering VR technology and also feature an array of demonstrations created by our local VR developers. They can help you embark comfortably on your first VR experience or dive deep into VR design and discuss the latest news from the fast changing world of VR. We are a government certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which means that all ticket fees and donations are dedicated to putting on more VR events in Boston and that all donations are tax deductible.
