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.
