HACKATHON DIGITAL REALITY, MARCH 4 and 5, 2017
There is something odd going on, in our human brain. It is easily fooled. Confronted with sound and images, the brain doesn’t know what the actual source is. Is is physically real? Is it a digital reality?
This flaw opens opportunities to play tricks on brains. Using Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, you can come up with wholesome solutions. Like easing children with ADHD. Or like giving a very sick child the chance to travel beyond the walls of the clinic.
What ‘happy hack’ are you working on at the Hackathon Digital Reality on March 4 and 5?
Some of the cool Toolies we have available are Oculus Rift, a Vive and a Hololens.
If you are a virgin Hololens user we advise you to download the software beforhand (it’s a time consuming activity!). Here is the link: https://developer.microsoft.com/nl-nl/windows/holographic/install_the_tools
