XR Day: Exploring the future of XR design and technology
March 3 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm$75
The development of extended reality hardware, devices, interactions, and apps is advancing at a rapid pace. The XR revolution spans augmented, virtual, and mixed realities (AR, VR, MR). Past all the hype, what are the capabilities now and in the future? What are the hurdles to broader adoption? How do we understand the user needs and applications to design for a better future? What are the career and research opportunities?
Join the UW Department of Human Centered Design & Engineering and presenting sponsor STMicroelectronics for an interactive day exploring the long-term potential in XR design and technologies. We invite industry professionals, academics, alumni, and UW graduate students to come together for cross-disciplinary conversations, thought leadership, collaboration, and to learn together.
