Opportunities and Challenges in AR/VR

A geared up gamer is synonymous with VR, but there’s more to it! VR is seeping through the industry spectrum springing up new possibilities. Virtual reality (VR) is about immersing one's self into a structured environment made to look and feel real while Augmented reality(AR) on the other hand is about dropping objects onto real surroundings, both of which are shifting market variables with their versatility.

A research by Goldman Sachs suggests the virtual and augmented reality industry is expected to be a striving $85 billion market by 2025. The possibilities that these new computing platforms provide are much broader than hardcore gaming, cinematic or putting mustaches on your selfies. This startup Saturday We're bringing Industry ninjas to enlighten us on the opportunities and challenges in the VR/AR industry. The fun awaits as we have a demo VR setup for you to experience it hands on!

Join us on the 11th of August 2018 at the CIIE, IIMA.
