Unreal Engine Meetup: VR and BluePrints!

From the meetup event page

Most everyone was interested in VR and Blueprints at our first meetup, so I'm working on a demo that we can pick apart and learn a bit about both subjects. I'll bring an HTC Vive for testing and we can discuss setting up VR projects for Vive, Rift, PSVR, and mobile VR. We'll go over pawns, motion controller components, Blueprint interfaces, and other fun stuff. Here's a sneak peak

There's free street parking after 6:00pm or you can use the Green Street parking garage on Fannin between Polk and Clay. Go to the top floor and look for Station Houston signage. More info @ http://stationhouston.com/contact-us/

Reality Reboot Hackathon by FKP

A Hackathon sponsored by FKP

Built environments face an exciting future as physical and digital technologies continue to develop. From augmented reality to robotic assistance, these technologies offer vast possibilities to reboot our traditional perceptions of design.

How will the responsive and interactive technologies dynamically engage physical spaces?

We’re calling on designers, programmers, engineers, entrepreneurs and more to discover and provoke new ideas for the future – how interactive realities impact the human experience. The Event is free to all accepted applicants so make plans to join us in February 2017 at FKP’s Houston headquarters!

The themes for "Reality Reboot" will fall into 3 categories,

Change the experience by breaking free of the confines which hold us back from delivering even greater care!

Architecture, Interior Design, Planning, Construction, Engineering; nothing is safe here!

This one is truly for the explorers in the AR/VR/Mixed Reality community!

HoloLens & Mixed Reality Solutions for Enterprise w/Softweb Solutions

As a special event, we're holding a second meetup in February to host a presentation and demonstration by Chicago-based Softweb Solutions! They will be talking about their experience developing Mixed Reality Applications for Manufacturing, Construction, and Oil & Gas. They'll be discussing industry-specific use-cases and best practices for augmented reality development. They'll also be demonstrating their products on a Microsoft HoloLens and providing pizza for everyone!

As this is a second event in the month, we won't be running VR demo stations, but we will have other activities such as roundtable discussions and Q&A.
