VRAR Chicago: The Next Evolution of Storytelling
Come experience #TheNextEvolution in immersive technology!
Storytelling is the reason we speak, the method for expressing experience to others. In every aspect of our lives we have a culture of storytelling: from understanding building blocks of our lived experience, to advertisements we see, the games we play, the movies we consume, the memories we share to fellows at the ‘ol watering hole. Immersive technology packages this timeless tradition in brand new, mind melting ways to bring this celebration of humanity into The Next Evolution.
Join us December 1st to hear the storytellers adventures in immersive technology.
What’s The Format:
We will be using Virbela’s Open Campus to host the program. We suggest that you download, set-up, get familiar with the Virbela program (virbela.com/download) and environment prior to the program, as we will be unable to provide support during the event. The event will also streamed on Facebook.com/VRARChicago (facebook.com/VRARChicago/live_videos/).
The virtual environment resembles a physical space, so you will be able to talk with other attendees during open networking both before and after the presentations. The sound is spatialized, so if at any point it feels too loud, feel free to move your conversation to another part of the room where there are less people.
We begin with informal networking and then start the stage portion promptly at 6:15pm CDT. There will be a handful of presentations before we move on to answer audience questions and then finish with more networking. We keep it simple and informal – this MeetUp is about you, our members, and not the host or presenters. Come and get your questions answered, take your next step into immersive technology.
