CROSS-POST - #CubeLearn: Spatially Aware MR using Bridge Engine - Occipital
#CubeLearn is a Lunch & Learn event presented by the Cube in partnership with industry experts in AR/VR/MR. This month's #CubeLearn's topic is "Spatially Aware MR using Bridge Engine for Rapid Iteration and Development with US-based Occipital" and it is open to the entire AR/VR Community. (RSVP required): Join us on Friday, June 22nd from 12:00-1:00 pm. The Cube has the mandate to make Vancouver a global excellence center for XR technology and, along with its education committee, the Cube is committed to helping current professionals in big talent pools such as gaming, VFX, and tech, to sustainably develop their skills and knowledge into VR/AR/MR technologies. (RSVP required): TOPIC OF THE MONTH Spatially Aware MR using Bridge Engine for Rapid Iteration and Development: Bridge Engine makes it simple to author and deploy mind-bending mixed reality experiences to the mobile device you already own. Coupled with Structure Sensor's ability to capture dense 3D meshes of scenes, you can create magical experiences where it's impossible to tell the virtual from the real. During this event we'll be working with the Bridge Engine . If anyone wants to download it ahead of time Jabob would be happy to do 1 on 1 walkthroughs of the SDK after the talk. Anyone with lightweight dev or interaction design skills will be able to follow along. General Unity knowledge will definitely help out, but we won't be getting too deep into the code. SPEAKER Jacob Erwin - Program Manager at Occipital Jacob has been working in mixed and virtual reality for the better part of a decade. It started with webcam-based AR in 2009 and things just escalated from there. These days he can be found working on Occipital's Bridge headset, supporting indi MR/VR projects and rambling on about the intersection of tech and human perception. FOOD / BEVERAGE: We’ll have pizza and drinks are available while quantities last. PLEASE RSVP noting if you’re bringing a +1 or 2. (RSVP required):

What we're about

VanVR (The Vancouver VR Community) is the best in the west inclusive virtual reality collective comprised of VR enthusiasts, evangelists, and creators. We invite folks of all different levels and interests. Our goal is to share our work and thoughts, actively promote diversity, and to create an enriched discourse on VR, making Vancouver a premiere flagship virtual reality hub in Canada.

In 2018, The Vancouver VR Community merged with the VanVR Meetup. VanVR was established in 2013, and introduced technical workshops and socials around VR - this Meetup started it all, and we are so excited to bring two specialized and diverse teams together.
