Tutorial for AR developers – special event for AugmentedReality.org members!
AWE is hosting the first International Hardware Startup Meetup that will bring hardware startups from across the world. On fire on kickstarter, these startups are not only reinventing manufacturing with digital design, manufacture as service, 3D printing, and robotics, they are also changing the landscape of human computer interaction. Wearables, eyewear, gesture interfaces, and a plethora of “connected things” are bringing clouds and atoms together in new ways to create one the most important new opportunities for the augmented world since smart phones and GPS.
PCH International and Upverter will be offering in-kind prizes to the best “connected” hardware startup. Brady Forrest, PCH International, will announce the winners (judges favorite) & present the award at the “Auggies” award ceremony on June 4th at the Augmented World Expo.
The Hardware Startup Meetup and Competition are focused on connected hardware and is co-located with Augmented World Expo. The Expo runs from June 3rd to 5th and covers all things Augmented Reality, from heads-up displays, to novel UX designs, education, automotive, etc. It’ll be like living in the future – today! Presenters in past Hardware Startup meetups and the special June 3rd meetup at AWE 2013 are eligible to enter the competition. Sign up ASAP to demo in the International Hardware Startup Meetup, June 3rd, 2pm. Here is the SIGN-UP SPREADSHEET (make sure it is on the: AWE June 3rd tab). This is bound to be a big crowd, so this would be a good one to demo at! The International Hardware Startup Meetup and Competition are FREE but AWE is offering an exclusive discount for Hardware Startup meetup members who’d like to go to the Expo too: you will get Expo passes for just $10 (an $89 discount) if you sign up on the Augmented World Expo website with the code HW13EXPO.
