The present and future of Immersive Computing: Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality at Autodesk.
Autodesk’s mission is to empower our customers to imagine, design and create a better world. Join us at our new Boston location in the Seaport for a presentation by Radha Mistry, Senior Evangelist for VR/AR, to learn how Autodesk is using immersive technologies to accomplish this mission. Our currently available VR offerings center around LIVE Design, which allows architects to quickly visualize their designs in VR using the industry leading tools they already use from Autodesk. On the near-term horizon Autodesk is pioneering VR through the development of new interaction techniques and cloud-based collaboration. Learn more about how the advancement of immersive technologies will impact the future of work.
Speaking of missions, how about going to Mars? HP’s Rick Hohman will discuss the newly launched Mars Home Planet initiative. In this collaborative design competition, participants will imagine, create and experience the environment for a sophisticated civilization on Mars. A new home for one million humans. Learn how you can participate in designing buildings and homes, transportation, infrastructure, food sources, and anything else humans will need. Everything will eventually be built into a shared virtual experience. You will have the opportunity to try out some of Autodesk’s unreleased collaborative VR prototypes and HP will be demoing their newly released Z VR Backpack.
