InsideAR Munich 2014 is just around the corner! If you haven’t read anything about it yet, you’ve come to the right place. Let me give you the grand tour of everything this conference has to offer:
First and foremost, let’s cover the basics! InsideAR was founded eight years ago as a small company event by Metaio. The fundamental goal of the event was informing customers and employees about ongoing projects and the current standards of Augmented Reality. Nobody would have guessed that not even ten years later, InsideAR would evolve into the world’s most exciting AR conference. After two very successful conferences in Beijing and Tokyo this year, we are expecting more than 1000 attendees at InsideAR Munich.
Now let me blow you away!
Never before have we had so many renowned companies speaking at InsideAR: Volkswagen, Audi, Daimler, Cisco, DHL, Intel, NVIDIA, Vectorform and BMW are just a few of our valued partners who will be joining us. Famous speakers (this year almost 60!!), fascinating topics, captivating workshops and mind blowing demos will all be waiting for you on two fully dedicated stages.
One thing is certain – you won’t be bored in those two days.
Emerging Technologies, New Sensors, Smart Homes, Hyper Reality and Privacy
On the morning of Day 1, Metaio’s Thomas Alt and Peter Meier will kick off the event by giving you the newest information on teaching devices to understand reality. A big part of this year’s focus will be on wearables and their importance for AR. Wearable technologies made a huge step forward this year, and AR has grown in popularity and use in the last couple of months (just take a look at the Gartner Hype Cycle) because of that. Be the first to know how to use those hands-free technologies in your favor by attending Annette Zimmermann’s speech about wearables and the new business opportunities they provide. Additionally, Cisco’s Dirk Schlesinger will talk about the ‘Internet of Things’ as a stepping stone for future innovation.
Our keynotes will give answers to questions regarding diverse industries,including AR in medicine, Industry 4.0, retail, advertising, logistics, education and more. For example: Jaguar’s Artur Grzybowski will be presenting one of the most exciting AR innovations for the automotive industry, and you’ll have to be at InsideAR Munich to see it!
If you ever wondered, what exactly the word ‘Hyper Reality’ contains, be sure to attend Keiichi Matsuda’s speech about “Hyper Reality and the Future of Information Environments.” Be part of Dorothea Martin’s workshop on AR Storytelling and learn what it takes to turn any AR application into something unique and engaging. Or learn “How to build the ultimate shopping scanner” in our workshop on Wednsday.
Since a theoretical approach always needs a practical follow-up, we are proud to present over 30 different AR demos in our exhibition area. Key among them will be an original BMW i8 with an AR application on Google Glass. Yes that’s right, a BMW i8 and Google Glass.We know it as the BMW i8 INNOVATION LIVE case study by Vectorform, and you can experience it first hand at InsideAR Munich.
The future is now: What’s next for Augmented Reality?
What is the status quo of AR? What will AR look like 5, 10, even 20 years from now? Will Augmented Reality be the user interface of our everyday life? Mary Lynne Nielsen and Christine Perey will present their answers to these questions at InsideAR Munich. Joining them is Fast Future’s Rohit Talwar, who will also address the future of AR in his keynote about emerging technologies and their impact on Augmented Reality.
Let’s not forget Ronald Azuma presentation about Intel’s famous flying whale, Leviathan, or how Tim Last got aliens to attack a London bus shelters not too long ago.
For those who have an appetite for classical musics, we have something special in store for you. The FH Düsseldorf will present their PavARotti project, which enables you to experience the music of the virtuoso in a whole new way. How exactly? Well, you’ll need to be there, to find out! Additionally, Professor Geiger and his students will show you what happens when you augment a beer brewery. To answer the question on your mind right now: yes, you will be able to drink it. After all, what would Munich be without its famous beer?
