AR/VR technologies and gaming have progressed a lot since their day one. Today we see how these solutions and activities are growing out of their former borders and entering other sectors, for example, Education and Healthcare. We are witnessing a change in the Gaming industry, where it has become an e-Sport, an art, and an activity, offering you new possibilities to acquire new skills.
We invite you to this unique arrangement where you can get to know about real-life applications and participate in a panel discussion about whether becoming more and more dependent on today’s technologies leads us in a right direction.
