The Co-Founders of startup company are coming up from Austin in November to give us a chance to experience the future of data visualization. This presentation and hands-on experience demo for everyone will include multiple headsets, including the brand new Magic Leap One.

The 3Data platform allows for the import of data from standard sources like Excel spreadsheets, but they have also developed integrations with analytics platforms like Microsoft Power BI. You can add the 3D visualizations from 3Data directly into Power BI, which gives you the ability to integrate virtual data visualizations side-by-side with standard charts and filtering capabilities. You can see a demo video here:

3Data's data visualizations use WebAR and WebVR standards, so the experiences are cross-platforms across VR/AR headsets, mobile devices and even desktop computer displays. After the presentation, there will be multiple headsets available for hands-on experience in the data visualization environment.

To give everyone a chance to experience the VR/AR aspect of data visualization, 3Data will be bringing along the following demo hardware:
- Magic Leap One
