ITKAN Monthly Meeting – September 2016


VR, AR, MR – New Realities


From movies and television to video games, virtual reality is already a hot technology. But, from the popularity of Pokemon Go and the development of Microsoft’s HoloLens, new realities – augmented and mixed – have come to the forefront. And they promise to deliver much more than enhanced entertainment! With a wide range of applications such as education, design, engineering, construction, and more, the evolving landscape for these technologies can be daunting to digest.

Join us at the next member meeting when Adam Hecktman, Director of Technology and Civic Innovation Microsoft Chicago, moderates a panel discussion of experts from the tech industry; Paul Edlund, CTO – Microsoft Technology Center, Matt Mead, CTO – SPR Consulting, and Naresh Koka, Vice President of Strategic Alliances – SPR Consulting, will elaborate on the differences between virtual, augmented, and mixed realities. They’ll also demonstrate the Hololens. This promises to be an immersive meeting!

The next meeting will be
September 8, 2016, 5-7PM
Aon Tower
Microsoft Technology Center, 2nd Floor
200 E. Randolph St
Chicago, IL 60601
