Plaza del Toro

We’ve put together a fantastic evening. You’ll enjoy fascinating presentations on surgical, educational and manufacturing applications for VR & AR, and learn how one Oregon studio creates the training simulations that help our Navy prepare for missile attacks. This mental feast will be followed by a gourmet dinner from renowned Chef John Gorham and exciting conversation games designed by Rose City Games. You should leave full of new information, good food, and hopefully brimming with exciting ideas for how virtual and mixed reality can apply to your life and work.

We hope you’ll join Oregon’s video game developers, elected officials, journalists and leadership from the industries outlined above as we learn why Oregon is uniquely positioned to become one of the best gamification, VR and AR development markets in the world.

PDXedTech Meetup: Future of AR/VR/MR in Education
DotDotDash

Recent advancements in mixed, augmented, and virtual reality ("MR", "AR", and "VR" respectively) have led to increased interest in re-examining their merit in K-12 and higher education.

What might the role of VR/AR/MR be in the classroom of tomorrow? How could these technologies be used for teaching and learning? Are they just a different way to do the same thing? Or, do they re-define and enable new forms of instruction and pedagogy that were never before possible?

These are just some of the questions we will explore, discuss, and practice with at the next PDXedTech meetup, an event of the NW Education Cluster. Whether as a tool for classroom management, data analysis, collaboration, or instruction, these technologies have a promising—though uncharted—future in education.

This is your chance for hands-on practice and experimentation with a variety of devices and contribute your ideas to the discussion.

Game On
New Relic

Game On is the Oregon Game Organization (OGO)'s annual celebration of games and new technology. This year, OGO and TAO have teamed up to bring you several presentations on Oregon games, where games are meeting enterprise, and a wide array interactive gaming stations and demos showcasing regional companies and their work.

Our evening will begin with demos, drinks & hors d’oeuvres, followed by several local companies sharing their current work and what is on the horizon for gaming. We will wrap up the evening by sharing additional hand-picked demos to educate and entertain all attendees of Game On.

The world of gaming is evolving rapidly. Games are a strong and ongoing contributor to job creation and the state’s economy, and the rapidly expanding AR & VR markets offer opportunities for us to use gaming skill sets to solve real world problems. Join business and creative leaders, policy makers and educators on the evening of March 9th to see what where we’ve been and what’s coming next.

Meaningful Reality: Moving Beyond the Hype
Fiction

An educational panel covering development, design, application, business use, and usability of mixed reality (Augmented and Virtual Reality) technology. Walk away with valuable insight from leaders in the emerging tech space, and learn how to apply this new technology in productive and functional ways for your business. With advances in technology, such as AR and VR, Mixed Reality is quickly being “hyped” up to become the next big technological milestone. From cardboard VR headsets, to your neighbors playing PokemonGo, we’ve all been exposed to some form of Mixed Reality. While these iterations are very playful, there’s a reason we’re seeing major investment in Mixed Reality. Our panelists will provide interesting insight into the current world of Mixed Reality, when it’s a fit for your brand and when it’s not, the impact on your business and service offerings, what core use-case is best for you, how to start exploring Mixed Reality, and the potential future of this technology.
