Augmented Reality: Creating Immersive Experiences

Urban Airship Inc
1417 NW Everett St, Suite 300
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)



When thinking of technologies in the far future it's common to think of devices that allow us to add to and replace reality: heads up displays, the Minority Report's hovering interfaces, virtual worlds from the holodeck to name a few. They are fantastic devices that could make incredible new experiences. So how could we create them?


Augmented Reality, or AR, is a growing technology that overlays digital content onto the real world. Bryan will explain what could be done with the technology, both as a form of entertainment and in day to day life. He then will then present a case for how AR could be developed in a way that makes economic sense to make those dreams into reality.
