Get a glimpse into the future of digital technology as Dom & Tom gives design and development demonstrations with some of tomorrow’s newest experimental devices. CEO Dominc Tancredi and director of mobile development Daniel Saad will be showcasing Google’s hands-free device, Google Glass; the virtual reality behemoth, Oculus Rift; and seemingly limitless open-source prototyping platform, Arduino.
