REAL 2015 - Where the Sensor meets the Maker
From the website:
"REAL is both an exclusive executive summit, REAL TALK, & a world’s fair of cutting-edge 3D demos, REAL LIVE. REAL is new and different: an immersive, hands-on, high-level gathering in a historic venue with a unique program. REAL is real people, doing real-world work with reality tech. REAL is Reality Computing.
REAL is 500+ leaders and innovators — professionals from across industry, investing, research, and media. REAL brings together real work spanning disciplines from: Architecture to Art, Engineering to Entertainment, Manufacturing to Media, Heritage to Health, and Sports to Science… REAL is executives & engineers, developers & designers, inventors & investors, architects & artists, makers & meteorologists, surveyors & scientists, entrepreneurs & educators.
From drones to autonomous cars, industrial robots to major engineering works, and game consoles to tomorrow’s mobile phones, 3D sensors are suddenly everywhere. And several decades after first grabbing headlines, VR and 3D printing are hot again, attracting billions in investment, and moving beyond early adopters to professionals. But it is the sum total, where sensing meets making, where big change is brewing. While the ‘Internet of Things’ grabs headlines, a 3D revolution is quietly building."
Topping things off on the last day, Matt Sonic and the San Francisco Virtual Reality Meetup group had their eighth meeting at the close of the REAL event that included thought provoking presentations and VR devs showing off some VR demos (unfortunately none related to the theme of the conference).
