Event Details


Join Us on Meetup

I'd like to invite anybody that is interested in talking about Augmented Reality and its application to smart glasses technology and development to come out to Citizen Space for a night of ideation and innovation. 

Please give a very special thank you to the world leader in Augmented Reality technology, Metaio, for sponsoring the drinks and bringing in their development team to speak on AR and its many incredible applications.

We’d be especially glad to have anyone who has experience or access to the Glass SDK and/or hardware come and give their input.

Download the Metaio SDK for free here.

A bit about our sponsor...

Founded in 2003 in Munich, Germany by current CEO, Thomas Alt and current CTO, Peter Meier, Metaio stated as an initial project with Volkswagen; from there, they bootstrapped from a German grant to found the beginnings of the current day Metaio.

In 2005 metaio released the first end-consumer Augmented Reality application called KPS Click & Design, allowing users to place virtual furniture into an image. Metaio then released their Unifeye Platformoffering third parties the opportunity to create commercial AR solutions.

In 2006 metaio released the first browser plug-in for web-based AR applications and shortly thereafter, launched the first fully integrated AR app for mobile devices and the first print/web campaign followed by the release of the mobile AR browser Junaio.
