Augmented Reality Summer School
(Registration period has been expired)
February 11th - 15th, 2019
Learn how to develop Empathic AR applications for the MagicLeap display.
Auckland, New Zealand
Staff and students from the Empathic Computing Laboratory are organizing a week-long AR summer school at the University of Auckland from February 11th - 15th. The summer school will combine taught lectures with hands-on project work with the MagicLeap AR display and a variety of physiological sensors and input devices. Attendees will work in small groups to each complete an example MagicLeap project by the end of the week. This is a unique opportunity to learn how to develop MagicLeap applications from leading experts in the field.
