The Future of Augmented Reality

On Friday, June 22nd, our leader and coach, Sean Carey, gave a presentation on “The Future of Augmented Reality” at this years’ coolTECH Conference at the Tampa Convention Center. The conference, sponsored by our long-time friends and colleagues at the Tampa Bay Technology Forum, was described by their site as, “… the premier showcase of new technologies and cutting-edge innovations in the region. Exhibits with some of the hottest technologies were on display in an interactive format where attendees could experiment first hand with the innovations. Over 500 decision makers, thought leaders and innovators from the technology and business community attended the event”.  And that it was!

We spent the morning sessions exploring all of the great exhibitors. We saw 3D printers, robots, new medical machines, new software, and a bunch of really great companies. After the awards luncheon, Sean gave a well-recieved presentation on Augmented Reality (AR).

The first part of the presentation was about the history of AR and HD Interactive’s early experiences with AR projects. From 3D AR cards to the Martha Stewart & Valpak promotion, Sean covered the evolution of AR and our place in it. The presentation ended with a glimpse of AR’s future including the Google Project Glass and Corning’s innovative uses of glass products augmented with future technologies.

We were so honored and excited to be a part of the great event and can’t wait until next year!
