Learn how to quickly create real-time cloud-connected 3D/AR/VR apps in a few simple steps. Join to see how you can build apps for the Metaverse for Android, iOs, HoloLens, MagicLeap, Unity, Unreal, and web browsers, all connected to the same cloud. In the session, we will learn how to change 3D content across all platforms simultaneously through the cloud without rebuilding the apps. We will look at why Metaverse developers are looking for new cloud solutions and why 3D-focused cloud infrastructure is needed. Participants are encouraged to either bring their laptops with Unity installed, bring their mobile device, or can follow the live demonstration.
What XR experience draws you in? What's throws you out? Good User Experience keeps the users in the “Flow” state while the bad one makes the users nauseous. In this talk, I will share with you the dos and don'ts of UX design for XR.
Nonprofits need creative ways to capture attention, funding, and supporters. There is so much competition for dollars along with challenges in getting your message in front of the right audience. Many organizations aren't able to show their donors the impact, particularly nonprofits that work overseas. As the world becomes more digital, innovative organizations like Hope for Haiti are using VR to transport people to Haiti, in a totally immersive setting. Hope for Haiti and FXG partnered to design an interactive social app, optimized for the Oculus Quest. Users can explore a three classroom school (modeled off an actual school in Haiti) and roam a rural Haitian landscape. The app is designed to provide a hands-on experience and give users a more positive perception of the country, by building a connection to the environment. Since the app’s inception, Hope for Haiti raised funds through a VR NFT auction, was highlighted in XR publications, and connected with new supporters and donors. Hope for Haiti aims to be a roadmap for other nonprofits to embrace VR as a way to share their work and mission. The Hope for Haiti app is available for free download on SideQuest.
The prize of functional, lightweight, all-day wearable smartglasses remains as elusive as ever. The missing linchpin component is the optical combiner which must reconcile the conflicting requirements of see-through quality, display performance, light weight, efficiency, prescription, compatibility and aesthetics. In this talk I’ll describe META’s approach to AR optical combiners based on a free space architecture enabled by holographic optical elements. Combined with our ophthalmic compatible ARfusion lens casting technology, the result is a monolithic combiner that provides extraordinary optical efficiency, ophthalmic grade see-through clarity, and the prescription and aesthetic properties that opticians, consumers, and regulators expect from eyewear. I’ll present META’s One Stop Shop approach to individualization that circumvents many of the concerns around eyebox size and manufacturability.
