Rare opportunity to explore augmented, virtual, mixed reality systems to be offered at SPIE Digital Optical Technologies

SPIE Newsroom
22 March 2017

Hands-on demonstrations of the world's most advanced augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) headsets will be a highlight of SPIE Digital Optical Technologies in Munich in June. The latest devices from Microsoft, Oculus, HTC, Sony, Google and Samsung will be available in what organizer Bernard Kress of Microsoft says is the first such demonstration session available to the public.

"Being able to fully experience and compare the world's most advanced AR and VR headsets in a single location is remarkable". Kress said. "These systems will soon revolutionize the way people communicate, teach, learn and explore, shop, play and are entertained, and be more productive in their personal and professional lives."
