Reality Check

VR and AR - A hype or the next big thing?

Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and after that, Immersed Reality. There has been talk about VR since the 60s and the chatter is getting louder by the day. What are our realities turning into? Is it really happening on a wide scope right now or is it still mostly industry talk? We want to find out by bringing some exiting news and guests onstage.

As usual there will be time for networking and making new friends within the startup community.

Is there a specific subject that you would love to hear about or a person that you really want to meet? Please let us know by writing so in the sign-up-form.
