VR/AR event with One Planet MBA

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.
