The use of immersive technologies such as Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality (XR) is increasing across a wide range of industries. Companies in industries ranging from health and wellness to tourism, retail and education are beginning to implement XR in new and innovative ways. And the scope of its use is wide. XR can be used to train employees to handle high-risk situations in a simulated risk-free environment; to create new experiences for customers; to increase brand awareness; to show sporting events and concerts in 360 degrees; to design products before ordering prototypes; to collaborate with colleagues in virtual 3D workspaces.
Aarhus is home to a strong and flourishing tech scene of large companies, startups, researchers and educational institutions. But what does Aarhus have to offer in terms of special skills within the realm of XR? And how may it be relevant for IT companies to learn about? This is what we will discuss when Vision Denmark, Filmby Aarhus, Tech City Aarhus, Realitet and Cadpeople invite you to the event “XR in Aarhus” on 19 December from 3-5pm at Cadpeople.
During the event, you will get the opportunity to meet the Aarhusian tech scene and hear some of the biggest players in the XR industry talk about their journey and experiences with immersive technologies.
Therkel Sand Therkelsen, founder of Realitet and expert in immersive technologies, will contribute with a basic introduction to key concepts such as Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality, the Metaverse and the spatial internet.
