State of the AR

Iain Anderson, Training Brisbane Part of CW17

Apple’s new ARKit has launched to some fanfare with iOS 11, and some flashy demos are already available. But is Augmented Reality just another fad? In this presentation, gain a broad overview of what AR is, of what developers have done so far with AR in gaming, education and art, and what it’s likely to be used for next.

Attend if you’ve heard of AR but not really seen it in person, or if you’re on the hunt for how you could potentially use AR in your own classrooms.
