Call for Participation

** Desktop Augmented Reality Demo & Workshop (Free) **

** Wednesday 15th September 5:00 pm – 6:30pm (Online) **

Dear All,

We would like to invite you to a demonstration and workshop on an exciting piece of new technology ‘Desktop Augmented Reality (AR)’ by Perception Holo-SDK.

Desktop AR enables viewers to enjoy two-dimensional computer visuals in three-dimensions and so offers a more immersive experience of our computer’s digital environment. This offers an exciting opportunity for both digital and physical exhibitions and museums such as the Imperial War Museums and the Science Museum Group<https://www.museumsassociation.org/museums-journal/people/2021/07/qa-holographic-technology-can-be-part-of-preserving-human-history/> are set to develop new holographic experiences with Perception Holo-SDK.

This workshop aims to both evaluate and showcase the technology to the wider GLAM sector and we want to consider the other future opportunities for this emerging technology. Specifically, participants will be given the opportunity to experience the technology with an example holographic exhibition and asked to reflect on their experiences in relation to different themes including (but not limited to):

  *   Audiences
  *   Accessibility
  *   Education
  *   Visitor Experience

This workshop is aimed at GLAM practitioners and workers, but we also welcome researchers and artists who may also be interested in learning more about this technology. You do not need to have any prior experience of AR/VR in order to participate.

Please see Eventbrite for further details and on how to register. Or please email any questions to perceptioncode.events at gmail.com
