Hands on with Matterport 3D & VR - Pass Sold Separately

Participants will come away with hands-on experience operating the Matterport 3D Vision System with both the Matterport 3D Pro and the Tango enabled Lenovo Phab 2 Pro with Matterport Scenes, and creating 3D & VR content (shooting on location at VRLA). They will work in groups for 3D scanning practice. They will then be guided through the Matterport Workshop (processing time of models will not allow for the models they just created to be edited), and see how VR Editor mode works, as well as the measurement tool and exporting OBJ files. We will also briefly touch upon advanced techniques, such as importing OBJ files into Unity and HTC Vive, and the Matterport VR SDK. Following the session, participants will all be emailed with links to the models that they created the following day, and they can continue to play with those in Workshop or share them with friends.

Creating Experiences for the HoloLens with Unity - Pass Sold Separately
This workshop is an introduction to the HoloLens. The HoloLens is a new, mixed reality device from Microsoft. This workshop explores what the HoloLens is, what makes the HoloLens unique, and how to work with its three pillars of input - Gaze, Gesture, and Voice. One of the most fascinating features is spatial mapping, one of the ways the HoloLens understands space around you. This workshop will also take you through ways to work with the spatial information to integrate with the real world. Next we’ll explore the complete workflow on how to develop applications for the HoloLens with Unity, as this allows us to integrate easily into the Windows Holographic API.
