Join us for a chat with long-time COVR members Kellin and Rusty that helped create the VR department at Ball Aerospace. They managed to turn a passionate hobby into an active part of their profession.

Learn how they started the VR department at Ball Aerospace. They will discuss how they are currently using immersive technologies and why they think it’s important, and how they plan to integrate it into the company.

Ball Aerospace builds satellites, antennas, and space Instruments — which fixed the Hubble telescope, helped create Google Earth, and even helped make JWST possible.

Demo’s planned:*
• Meta 2 AR HMD
• Samsung Odyssey
• VR laptop and Vive showcasing MR using the Vive tracking pucks
• VR laptop and Vive showcasing our first VR demo that allows users to see the inside of satellite
