Presenter Details:

Title: Arrgh, Not so real monsters!

Augmented Reality (AR) is becoming more accessible to a wide range of users, and while this is often used as a gimmick, there are still many very valid uses for it across industries. AR at its most basic allows us to project game objects into the real world but can do so much more than just flooding your house with Zubats.

This talk will briefly introduce Augmented Reality and its current state, before comparing some of the development kits available and how to get started using them. Throughout, It will also discuss some of the ways AR can be implemented more meaningfully without becoming just a gimmick, as well as it’s future!
