AUREA Community Event: The new frontier of edutainment

Location based AR has the potential to revolutionize our lives. From the way we learn to the way we experience new places, having a layer of digital content complementing the real world is going to offer endless possibilities. In this event we will interview the creators of two experiences that have pushed the boundaries of Location Based AR and merged elements of entertainment and education in brand new ways.

Join this Live and interactive event to learn about: - How to guide thousands of users new to immersive technologies through the experience - How to tackle and leverage the constraints of the real environment throughout the whole experience - The design and interaction choices made during the AR development - How to maximize the potential of a powerful mixed reality headset, like Micorosoft Holoens 2.
