Imagine climbing Mount Everest, or visiting the Pyramids – all in your living room..!
Virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) have the potential to become the next big technology platform, and to reshape the way we live, learn and play. With the arrival of affordable headsets, virtual reality will transform how we do many things such as buying a car, visiting a doctor or watching a football game. As the technology advances and new applications are created, VR/AR is tipped to become a new multibillion dollar industry of the future.
To truly appreciate this amazing technology, you need to experience the magic for your self. Come and join us for a fun and informative evening and try the latest virtual reality headsets.
The format will be a series of Codex Talks. A Codex Talk is a concise presentation from a speaker with the aim of answering a set question related to their industry or technology area. After answering the question, the speaker will be asked to make a bold prediction about their industry.
A Codex Talk will give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.
