Description

Blade Runner 2048? More like NYC 2018! Holographic cityscapes are no longer just a sci-fi dream. Last November Looking Glass Factory launched HoloPlayer One, the world’s first interactive lightfield development kit. Now, on February 3rd 2018, Looking Glass is teaming up with Mapbox to host Holo-Hackathon #2: #HoloCities. We’re assembling a select group of “holo-urbanists” to imagine the future of holographic city maps and apps.

If you are a cities enthusiast, artist, developer, map-nerd or hologram hacker, we want you! Registration is free and there will be experienced developers on hand to help you use the HoloPlay SDK and Mapbox Maps SDK for Unity, Looking Glass will provide all teams with HoloPlayer One 3D display systems as well as the HoloPlay Unity SDK for use during the event.

Because space is limited, there is a cap on registration for this event. To ensure a diversity of skills and background on hackathon teams, we will ask you to fill out a short survey beforehand. You will be confirmed for the event once you have received an email confirmation from our team. The presentations and afterparty in the evening are open to all, so invite your friends! If you want to get a headstart or get to know your fellow hologram hackers, join this pre-meetup happening on January 31st.

We’re excited to welcome you to the first-ever #Holocities Hackathon!
