Our speakers are confirmed and we are a go for our Medical in VR and AR Meetup. Please note that we are starting at 6 pm this time.

Healthcare is undergoing a dramatic transformation which demands novel approaches to next generation solutions. As such, over the last few years, healthcare systems have begun to utilize immersive technology--including Augmented Reality (AR),Virtual Reality (VR), mixed reality and 360-degree video--as innovative tools for healthcare delivery. Doctor's Manning and Pearson will lead us through some of these innovations.

Our awesome sponsor, Wheelhouse Media, is hosting the event (601 S Cedar St #201 · Charlotte, NC near Panther Stadium). Parking is free with the upper lot having more parking and easier access.

If you are involved in VR or AR in the Charlotte area, let me know so we can highlight your project or company. Thanks and see you on Thursday, September 19th.
