The Charlotte Virtual and Augmented Reality Meetup brings together like-minded individuals that see the potential of the emerging Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality industry. All levels of interest are welcome. Whether you are a developer, an enthusiast, or just want to try out VR for yourself, we encourage you to participate in the VR/AR movement. This participation will involve experiencing the latest available in VR technology and discussing the future of VR and its many applications. VR is currently becoming more well-known to the general public through the introduction of HMD's created by brands such as Oculus, Samsung, Google and HTC. These HMD's largely focus on the entertainment aspect of virtual reality. However, the technology has many more practical, everyday uses. It will continue to evolve and transform various fields, such as healthcare, education, and communications, to name a few. We believe this will be the platform of the future and it is only in its infancy. To our knowledge, there is not a significant amount of awareness in the Charlotte, NC area in regards to VR and AR. We would like to change that by creating a network of enthusiasts in this region to share ideas and enhance this experience.
