Join us for our June event where Peter Daukintis from Microsoft will be talking about the HoloLens, Pierre-François Gerard will be talking about the work he did for Amnesty International and Shaun Dunne will talk about AR.js. I hope you can make it.
6:30pm - Drinks and talking
7:00 - HoloLens: The Path to Mixed Reality - Peter Daukintis - Technical Evangelist at Microsoft
Microsoft HoloLens is the first fully self-contained holographic computer running Windows 10. It is completely self-contained-no wires, phones, or connection to a PC needed. Microsoft HoloLens allows you to place holograms in your physical environment and provides a new way to see your world. This session provides a mixed reality primer and an overview of the available tools & documentation to quick start your holographic application development.
7:20 - Memories from Saydnaya: leveraging WebVR to share the truth - Pierre-François Gerard - VR architect
Forensic Architecture was commissioned by Amnesty International to design a website that would bring awareness on the Syrian prison in Saydnaya. I worked with Forensic Architecture to produce a series of experiences partly using WebGL, partly using videos, animations and still images. This talk will explain the workflow used to produce the 8 interactive 360 panoramic views and also why we didn't go down the VR route! Please visit the website at https://saydnaya.amnesty.org/
7:40 - Web AR using AR.js - Shaun Dunne - Co-Founder and Director of VR at StudioZero (https://studiozero.co/)
AR.js is a library created by Jerome Etienne for creating augmented reality.
8:0 - wrap up
