On Tuesday 14th March we held a Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality event at the University of Exeter Innovation Centre with our good friends at the OnePlanetMBA. We had a great mix of people – students, lecturers, and of course the awesome TechExeter community. There were lots of smiling faces and great feedback from people who were trying out Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift + Leap Motion, HTC Vive, and Microsoft Hololens.
Huge thanks to all our helpers, including @NikomusGames, @innovexeter and OnePlanetMBA.
Join us for the first event of 2017 for our regularly scheduled mix of 3x 15 minute lightning talks, announcements, chat and networking.
- Hannah Shaw on Bing Maps – recent developments and features
- Alastair Buick on Digital Healthcare
- Duncan Thomson on Getting Started with Data Science – an overview of Data Science and some of the skills and resources needed for it.
Keep reading for slides!
