Session abstract: 

While Virtual and Augmented Reality are quickly becoming household terms, most developers believe it's an either-or situation. Luckily though, there is a device that can do both very well – Epson’s Moverio BT-200 smart glasses. These binocular see-through glasses are a perfect platform for AR, but are also extremely capable of handling VR. There is even a Unity3D Native Android Plugin for the Moverio to jump-start your development.

In this workshop we'll cover the following:

  • An overview of device capabilities from across the AR/VR spectrum

  • A quick intro covering the capabilities and features specific to the Moverio BT-200

  • Some best practices and research from a top Head Mounted Display developer on how to make amazing experiences

  • Tips and tricks on how to move away from AR/VR novelty

  • Unity3d and Native Android integration and how to port your previous apps over to the Moverio
