  • 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): https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/cubelearn-spatially-aware-mr-using-bridge-engine-occipital-tickets-46866621326 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): https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/cubelearn-spatially-aware-mr-using-bridge-engine-occipital-tickets-46866621326 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 https://bridge.occipital.com/blog/announcing-bridge-engine-10/ . 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.

  • VRARA Vancouver Presents: AR Everywhere | The Spatial Era is Here (Picatic)
    Must buy tickets here: General Admission: $60 includes food/drinks Free for members https://www.picatic.com/event15282171322509 Augmented Reality is promising a future where our experiences with digital information aren’t bounded by a box. This new mass medium will completely change the way people live, work and play as our physical reality blends with a virtual one. To enable these immersive, natural and intuitive experiences, we need “The AR Cloud”, a machine-readable, 1:1 scale model of the world. Experts believe “The AR Cloud” will be the single most important software infrastructure in the history of computing, far bigger than Google’s search index and Facebook’s social graph. What is the AR Cloud and why is it so important? How will location-based AR experiences change in the next few years after Pokemon Go’s big debut in 2016? Does this year mark the beginning of the spatial era? Join us on June 19th and learn from the industry’s brightest minds, connect with other like-minded VR/AR professionals and experience never-seen-before mixed reality demo’s as we unveil the potential of Augmented Reality. This event will feature a keynote by Marco DeMiroz, the co-founder and General Partner of the Venture Reality Fund and collaborator of the formation of the Women in XR (WXR) Fund. We are excited to feature a talk by Alex Chuang of Shape Immersive on “Building the AR Cloud” Our first panel will be a discussion on location-based AR and its gain in popularity and its future trends. Speakers from Motive.io , QuestUpon and others will join us on stage. Our final panel will feature an interesting dialogue on AR Cloud. Speakers from Shape Immersive, Atheer and Steampunk Digital, almond with other will discuss all its applications. The full list of speakers and demos will be announced this week! Food and drinks will be provided! $60 general admission | free for members
